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.
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.
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.
Wow. This is a keeper.
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.
Oh you cannot fool me. That is yams and no matter how many pecans you pile on there yams are a device of the devil.
Mais yah ders a difference. (I’m all over the Cajun YouTube, excuse the accent).
I don’t know what it is, though.
Then it’s good to know the devil has done something good for a change.
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.
Never heard of it. I always have baked pineapple.
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.
Penguin, I have never heard of baked pineapple. Do you know how that’s made?
LOL Anita Marie. What is Story Night?
Get canned pineapple…put into rectangular glass holder-thing…bake?
Someone else served it to me.
I will have to check into that Penguin. I love pineapple upside down cake, so I’d probably like baked pineapple. Thanks for telling me about this.
No problem. It’s good.
Wow, I was just looking on Seaswell’s recipe page and found her Sweet Potato Casserole recipe. It’s similar but is explained a little better.
Next time I make it (tomorrow) I think I’ll jack up the oven to 400 degrees as in her recipe.
Now that looks DEE-licious! Sounds a lot like my Pumpkin crunch recipe that is a hit around Thanksgiving.
Total, that sounds good too, I’ll have to go check out your recipe. Thanks for the tip.
what’s that in gas?
That would be gas 6 in the UK.
Thanks! I’ll tell you how it turned out.
I’m sure it’ll have everyone going over to your place for every Christmas.
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.
Stil, we just have it at Thanksgiving and Christmas. It’s heavy and makes you feel heavy.
Dumb question but, is this somethng you can freeze? You know, I might want to instaneously feel heavy more than a few times a year. 🙂
I haven’t frozen any of this, but I bet you could freeze half of the recipe before you bake it.
I made a big dish and stuck the rest in the freezer. I’ll let you know if it works.
