Sweet Potato Casserole Recipe


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

Or both. You know, sometimes when you find something that works for both, you just have to go with it. Right?

Normally, we serve our sweet potato casserole in one large casserole dish, but I love having it as individual servings. With individual servings, everyone gets their fair share of the of that crunchy, sweet pecan topping. No family feuds will break out. Well, at least not about someone getting more topping than the other.

The smell of sweet potato casserole makes your entire house smell amazing. Better yet, your family and guests will try to figure out how to get every last bite our of the dish. Just watch them when you serve it. I promise, they’ll be trying to figure it out. Just watch.

Here’s how I make my Sweet Potato Casserole. Hope you love it!

    I am so excited about this recipe! :) I plan on using candy roaster with it instead of sweet potato though. My mouth is just watering thinking about it! LOL

    Oh Robyn! My mom has made this for the last few Thanksgivings, and it is SO good. We were never a sweet potato family until she started making this. Thanks for reminding me about this fantastic recipe. It shouldn’t be relegated to just Thanksgiving.
