The Best Sweet Potato Casserole

sweet_potato_casserole

I have a small confession.   I do not like sweet potatoes.  I have tried to like them but they just aren’t my thing.  My family loves them and Thanksgiving isn’t complete without a Sweet Potato Casserole.

Let me tell you why this is the best sweet potato casserole in town.  It turns a sweet potato hater into a lover.  I honestly couldn’t believe how incredible this casserole was.  And that I was actually eating sweet potatoes and loving it!  It is the perfect consistency and not too mushy and the combined flavors are incredible.  The topping was my favorite part.  A pecan brown sugar topping that gives it a little crunch and great texture.  This was the best.  My hubby ate half of the pan himself.  I know that if you make these, you will agree that they truly are the BEST!

  1. I MADE THIS LAST NIGHT…RECIPE DIDN’T SPECIFY OVEN TEMP, SO I PUT IT AT 350 DEGREES. THE DISH WAS DELICIOUS. MORE LIKE A SWEET POTATO PIE.
    ***** 5 STARS

  2. Agreed this looks great but what is the temp for baking? also does it keep well if you prep it the night before? Thanks for sharing!

  3. Did you cook the sweet potatoes in the oven or microwave? Wondering if it gives it a different taste. This looks good I’m making it for Thanksgiving 🙂

  4. Thanks for the great recipe – we love sweet potatoes and this recipe makes us love them more. I did cut the casserole recipe in half since there are only 3 of us, but I left the topping recipe – can’t have too much crunch.

    1. This recipe is absolutely fabulous. I am going to a family reunion for Thanksgiving and would need to make this the night before. Is it OK to make it up and bake the next day?

  5. Cant wait for mine to come out of the oven. Tweaked a little semi smashed the sweet potatoes and added some raisins to the mixture. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
