Incredibly Tasty Sweet Potato Casserole

on November 22, 2012

I have never been a fan of sweet potato casserole. The combination of sweet potatoes with marshmallow is just way too sweet and the consistency doesn’t sit well with me. So, I always avoid it during Thanksgiving meals. Until one glorious Thanksgiving holiday that we went to a friends house and had a taste of the most amazing sweet potato casserole I have ever graced my taste buds with.. For those of you who don’t like sweet potato casserole, I urge you to try the following recipe! Its incredibly simple and sooooo delicious!

3 C Sweet Potatoes (mashed)- I use Jewel Yams
1 C Brown Sugar (Packed)
2 Eggs (lightly beaten)
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1/2 C Milk (I use Almond milk)
1/2 C Butter (melted) or Oil

Topping:
1/2 C Brown Sugar (packed)
1/3 C Flour (use rice, sorghum, or even almond flour for gluten free version)
1/3 C Butter (melted)
1 C Pecans (chopped)

Combine the first 6 ingredients well. Pour into a 1 1/2 – 2 quart glass casserole dish. Mix topping ingredients together and sprinkle over top. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes. Let cool, and enjoy!!
