Thanksgiving is past here in Canada, but I know it’s still coming up for my USA friends. I highly recommend you add this dish to your Thanksgiving spread. I bet it will be gobbled up faster than you can say “turkey”!

The filling is creamy and sweet and the topping adds an extra bit of flavour and crunch. I know once you try it, you’ll want to make it again and again.
