Mom’s Sweet Potato Bake
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Bake: 45 min.
Due to Covid-19, our Thanksgiving eliminated one family at our table--the side of the family that always brings a sweet potato casserole with the melted marshmallows on top. So this was my opportunity to try this dish and I was delighted with the result! Great flavor and wonderful crunch from the topping. Based on some reviews I read, I cut back on the amount of sugar to about slightly less than 2/3 cup instead of a full cup. This made it just right in my opinion. This dish beats that old standard with the marshmallows hands down!
My family have loved this recipe for years! It is "dessert" sweet, so I cut the sugar to 1/2 cup, and it is still pretty sweet... but we like it that way. The topping is tasty and the crunch and flavor or the pecans is so nice. This is a tradition at our holiday table.
We love this recipe! It was a great change from our marshmallow sweet potato casserole. I cooked my sweet potatoes in a slow cooker for four hours on high, then was able to scoop the flesh out easily to make this dish. I wouldn’t change a thing, it’s perfect as is! I will definitely be making this over the holidays again next year!
This is the sweet potato casserole I’ve made for 43 years. The only difference, I do the mixture in a large blender. It gives it a soufflé texture that is very unexpected! Occasionally, I will substitute orange juice for the milk at Christmas.
This is almost exactly how I’ve made my famous sweet potato casserole for years. I devoure the leftovers (even for breakfast). It’s one of the few foods my mother-in-law would actually say something nice about. She can’t stand her yankee DIL is a better cook.
Once baked do you eat it hot or cold?
Made this yesterday with just a couple of slight adjustments; used double the amount of sweet potatoes, 1 cup of brown sugar but kept the rest of the ingredients the same. Everyone LOVED it and this looks like it will be my new go to sweet potato recipe! Thx! Oh, and can be prepped in advance, refrigerated and then baked which is always a good thing to be able to do when hosting 10 for dinner!
Excellent and so easy to put together. We will make this recipe throughout the year not just for Thanksgiving. The only addition that I will make in the future is to add some cinnamon and nutmeg.
these were excellent. Made them just as is. company loved them too. Will definitely make again.
