Sweet Potato Crunch

The kid’s favorite side dish for Thanksgiving or Christmas is a casserole of sweet potatoes with a sugary pecan topping. This dish is the first to get cleaned out. So let’s make it.

Set oven to 350 degrees.

Gather up:

3 cups cooked mashed sweet potatoes

1 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 beaten eggs

1/2 stick butter

1/2 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Mix above ingredients and put in a buttered pan.


1 cup brown sugar

1 cup chopped pecans

1/3 cup flour

1/3 cup melted butter

Combine and spread over sweet potato mix in pan. Bake for 35 minutes.

  1. Oh I’m already kicking myself for not having some pecans in stock, or enough sweet potato. I braved Sainsbury’s today, and it was just bareable. If I go in the next 2 days, I will be there for hours and hours fighting to get to anything. It’ll be packed solid and the waiting at the checkout has made better people than me pass out. That dish sounds ………….I want some!!!!! I’ll have made it before the year is out, that’s for sure.
    Thank you!!!!

  2. Pecans were hard to find here for Thanksgiving. I stocked up last time I saw them.

    Also just did my Christmas shopping in the pits of hell. I wonder how much worse it would be if we didn’t have online shopping? Hate to think about it.

  3. It’s a heavenly dish.

    I forgot to say, to cook sweet potatoes, I bake them for one hour at 350 degrees. This can be done the night before so you don’t have this dish hogging the oven, especially if you have a turkey to bake.

  4. I’m making this for Christmas Kitty-
    And when I serve it up I’m going to make sure you and The Blonde Gang ( Hi Max and Co. ) make it into Story Night .
    It’s gonna be great.
    They’re going to think I made you all up.

    Happy Christmas

  5. Sweet potatoes are so good for you, unfortunately, the rest of the recipe is not so we’ll just pretend otherwise. Thanks for the dish – looks delish. Gonna have to try that one day.
