Butternut Casserole w/ Bacon-Pecan Streusel



Yep. There’s really not much I need to say. This modern take on a sweet potato casserole is pretty much amazing. Maple bacon. Need I say more?

Fluffy & sweet baked butternut puree with a crunchy, maple-bacon & pecan streusel topping. All I can really say is you won’t be sorry.

    Tom Foolry, interesting name. I suggest you could probably begin with the Full Swing Lessons DVD. Getting your swing right first would make more sense for you, once your swing and technique is refined, then it’s wise to learn some swing drills to maintain consistency and increase accuracy.
