Sweet Potato Casserole


This is the Best sweet potato casserole I’ve ever tasted.  It’s soooo delicious I could eat the whole pan by myself. Well, not really, but only because it makes a big pan. This is one of those dishes that my whole family loves on Thanksgiving. They would revolt if I ever so much as threatened not to make it.

It’s very rich and good and sweet.  If you don’t like a sweetened sweet potato casserole this is not the one for you.  If you’re used to the standard recipe with  marshmallows melted on top, oh baby, you won’t believe what an upgrade this recipe is. Honestly, I can’t tell you how seriously delicious this sweet potato casserole is!!!!

This recipe will nicely feed 12-15……and they will all be very happy you made this for them.  :)

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

    Is it possible to prep/premix & refrigerate for cooking in the following day or two?

      Hi Lauren, yes that works out great. Just add the topping when you reheat it so it stays crunchy
