SWEET POTATO CASSEROLE

I completely realize that some might frown on the idea of using canned sweet potatoes. But I will tell you that the secret to a really good sweet potato casserole, that is not only quick and simple, but tastes homemade is those canned sweet potatoes. 

I am always recipe searching and testing for delicious family favorite Thanksgiving side dishes. While sweet potato casserole is my favorite, it’s also very time consuming. 

Wash and peel the potatoes. Then chop them up and put them into a pot. Bring it to a boil and then let them cook until soft. Or, you can heat the oven to 450 degrees and bake them in the oven. Heat up the house. Take up precious oven space. Then burn your hands trying to handle the potatoes.

My tips for making sweet potato casserole

  • For best results use a handheld blender, or a bowl of the stand mixer, to blend up the sweet potato mixture. Unless of course you prefer a chunkier sweet potato mixture, then you will be fine just mashing them up with a potato masher. 
  • If the top of the casserole is getting to brown for your liking during the cook time, simply cover the dish loosely with tin foil while in the oven to prevent excessive browning. 
  • I love this praline version because the topping is sweet and crunchy and then you get the soft & creamy sweet potatoes underneath. I never cover mine with foil because I like a crispy topping, but feel free to do so. 
  • When you drain the canned sweet potatoes there may be some bad spots on some. Take a knife and trim it off if wanted. Also, be sure that they are drained well. I just put mine in a colander and let it sit there for several minutes to drain. 
  • I have used walnuts & pecans in the praline topping when I have not had enough pecans in the pantry. It was really good that way. Just an fyi in case you want to do the same.

  • 5 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped pecans

  4. In a small bowl, combine all the praline crumble ingredients and mix together until moistened and it resembles wet, coarse sand. Sprinkle it evenly over the sweet potatoes.
