Sweet Potato Casserole Recipe

Ahhh... Thanksgiving!  It's that time again when we slow down our busy Fall schedule to spend a little extra time with those we love, allowing our precious God, the Giver of good gifts, to remind us of all for which we have to be thankful.  And, of course, it's also the time of year when we get to break out our favourite Fall recipes.  Below is one of our family's favourite Thanksgiving recipes (although I have been known to make this dish at numerous family get-togethers throughout the year!).

Originally taken from a Southern cooking-style website, I have tweaked/subtracted/added amounts over the years to suit our family's taste.  Give it a try (and be sure to do your own tweaking!).  I'm SURE this is gonna be a family favourite in your house too!

...and Happy Thanksgiving (or Merry Christmas!)! 


Sweet Potato Casserole 


- 5 cups (approx. 6 potatoes) mashed sweet potatoes (poke several holes and microwave until tender... about 12 minutes... cool & skin comes off easily)

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 eggs, lightly beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup melted butter


- 3/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup melted butter

1 1/2 cup chopped pecans


Combine first 6 ingredients. Pour into a buttered (I spray Pam) 2-quart casserole dish (I use 9-13 pan so everyone gets lots of topping). =) Mix remaining ingredients together and sprinkle over top. Bake at 350 F for 45 minutes, until hot and browned.
Serves 6 to 8.

** I have tweaked the original recipe by increasing potatoes (originally called for 3 cups), reducing the brown sugar by half, and increasing Topping ingredients by half. Yummmmm!

Dear God, sometimes my "testing" season seems so long. Please give me courage to endure until the end. Help me not to bail! You said you would bless me for hanging in there - I will not give up on you or your promises. You are with me and will see me through this trial.
