Dessert, Side Dish

Sweet Potato Casserole graces my family table every fall. With it's rich, buttery taste and crunchy topping, sweet potato casserole makes for a perfect side dish, but is sweet enough to serve as a dessert.

  • 5 cups cooked sweet potatoes (mashed (about 5-6 medium sweet potatoes))
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 8 tablespoons butter (softened)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup brown sugar (packed)
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 4 tablespoons butter (softened)
  • 1/2 cup mini marshmallows (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 350º F. Scrub sweet potatoes and boil or bake in the oven until tender.
  2. Cool, peel and mash the sweet potatoes. Stir in granulated sugar, butter, vanilla, milk and eggs, mix well. Pour mixture into a 9x13 casserole dish or individual dishes for serving.
  3. For the topping:
  4. Mix brown sugar, flour, nuts and butter together and spread evenly over sweet potato mixture.
  5. Cook for 30 minutes until topping has browned. If using mini marshmallows, add them the final 10 minutes of baking. Remove from oven and serve.
