Thanksgiving is my JAM. It’s right up there with 4th of July for me when it comes to food (I know, that’s a weird combo, but it’s true!). 

I’m working on putting together a Keto Thanksgiving this year for myself, but my kids told me they’d run away to Grandmas if sweet potato casserole (WITH the mini marshmallows- duh!) wasn’t on the table. 

Kids, your wish is my command. And thankfully this is pretty easy to make when you get the Instant Pot involved.
