Perfect Thanksgiving Side Dish

I have been searching for new lower calorie recipes to help me keep my new-found waistline. I love how the sweetness of the sweet potatoes mixed with the Country Crock honey butter allows me to cut back on the sugar. I was wondering how the kids would enjoy it, and it was a big hit! This will make a great edition to our supper as a perfect Thanksgiving Side dish
