I love sweet potatoes. I try and make a recipe with sweet potatoes at leeast once a week, even if it’s just a simple baked one! They are healthy and good for you so good to have to your diet. This recipe isn’t so healthy and is a little more induldgent. This sweet potatoe casserole is nice and creamy smooth and toped with brown sugar, butter and pecans. YUM! This is a perfect holiday sidedish.
You can make this casserole with fresh or canned sweet potatoes. Whichever you’d like. Please take a look and drool a little!! 🙂
Creamy Sweet Potato Casserole
4 cups cooked sweet potatoes
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs, beaten
1/2 stick butter, melted
1/2 stick butter, cubed
1/4-1/2 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup mini marshmallows
Directions: Add cooked sweet potatoes to a large bowl. Add in eggs, butter and sugar to the bowl. Using a hand mixer, mix until completely smooth and lump free. (Note: you can use a spoon if you don’t have a hand mixer, it just may not be super smooth, and that’s ok.)
Next add the sweet potatoes to a oven safe baking dish. Top evenly with brown sugar and chopped pecans. Add the butter cubes over the top of the brown sugar. Bake in oven at 375° for 30-40 minutes or until bubbly and brown. Lastly remove from oven and add the mini marshmallows on top and bake for another 8-10 minutes until they are soft but not melted. Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
Note: This can be made ahead of time and popped in the oven the day of. Just note you may need longer cook time since mixture will be refrigerator cold. You can also use canned sweet potatoes if you prefer, I’d just rinse them as they may add extra sweetness. Or instead you can just reduce the sugar in the potatoes.
