Sweet Potato Casserole

Friends have asked and I'm sharing  my "go-to" recipe for sweet potatoes.

For many years, I never really was a Sweet Potato Casserole fan until I found and tried this recipe and immediately fell in love.  It is awesomeness in a casserole dish!

Prior to finding the recipe, I relied on the ever popular candied sweet potatoes, minus the marshmallows. Gasp!  Yes, no marshmallows for me, it was just too sweet.

To change things up, give this recipe a try for your next holiday gathering.  Nah, don't wait, you really don't need a reason, just try it and you'll be hooked.






Sweet Potato Casserole

Ingredients:


3 cups mashed sweet potatoes
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup half and half
1 stick melted butter (1/2 cup)

Directions:


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine the above ingredients together until well blended.
Pour the mixture into a buttered 1 1/2 quart baking dish.  Add the topping.

Topping Ingredients:


1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup chopped pecans

My career is in IT.  Cooking and photography are among a few of my hobbies. In my spare time, which is most weekends I tie on my apron and exercise my creativity by trying new recipes and adapting them to my tastes. I also have a passion for photography that I incorporate by taking photographs to go along with the recipes I post on my blog.  
I also enjoy travel, both near and abroad. Meeting new people, new experiences and cultures and oh, not to mention the food! I hope you enjoy my blog.
