Sweet Potato Casserole: it's not just a side to that Thanksgiving turkey!

Hey y'all! I know it has been a while since my last post, but school does a great job of keeping me busy. Lucky for me it is almost over! I hope some of you were able to test out the cornbread recipe, but if not I think I have another good one. Sweet potatoes are a delicious and healthy food, but with a little sugar and some love this dish is sure to be a delight. It's a simple and easy way to fill stomach's and make those taste buds swoon.


  • 3 cups mashed sweet potatoes
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • Topping:
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup chopped pecans


Combine first 6 ingredients. Pour into a buttered 1 1/2 to 2-quart casserole dish. Mix remaining ingredients together and sprinkle over top. Bake at 350° for 30 to 40 minutes, until hot and browned. Serves 6 to 8.

I will be leaving for the beach on Monday for a week, so it will be a while until my next post. I can't wait to hear the responses from the recipes!

With southern love,


  1. I have some canned mashed sweet potatoes. I think I would like to give this dish a try. I just need to figure out how to adjust the amounts of all the ingredients.

  2. This sounds wonderful!

    Have fun at the beach!

  3. OohLALA, I love Sweet Potatoe anything...I can't wait to try this Rachel! ;) Hope you are having a great time at the beach! ;) ~CC Catherine (Aunt Cathy to you!) ;)

  4. One of my all time favorites, but living in Canada most folks do not use sweet potatoes. I think they are scared of them lol
    Ok the beach sounds fantastic. We still have snow on the ground. The front of my house is clear and I think I can see little green things sticking out. lol
    See you soon
