Add Sweet Potato Casserole To Your Holiday Meal

Sweet potatoes are always a much-loved comfort food during the holidays. While many often associate sweet potatoes as a Thanksgiving-themed dish, they will make a great addition to your Christmas feast, too. With its pecans and brown sugar topping, this casserole’s sweet flavouring will balance out the more savoury dishes at your Christmas dinner — such as turkey, roast, and winter vegetables. Most of all, this dish also makes for some great leftovers: simply freeze what you don’t finish, and reheat whenever you need a reminder of your epic Christmas meal. In addition, if you are going to be serving vegetarians at your holiday meal, they will definitely appreciate this casserole. Even though this is technically a side dish, it is not very light — when accompanied by a salad, soup, or other side, this flavourful and hearty casserole will ensure that any non-meat eaters will be full and satisfied too. Feel free to add some cinnamon and nutmeg to this recipe, based on your personal preferences. And if you want to make this recipe a little less sweet, substitute the pecans for another type of nut, such as almonds or walnuts.Ingredients


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spread some butter or spray some non-stick cooking spray onto a  2 quart baking dish.
  2. Pour the sweet potatoes into a medium saucepan or pot. Cook the potatoes for 15 minutes, or until they are tender (or when they can be easily cut in half). Drain the potatoes from the water and mash them.
  3. Mix your sweet potato mash with the white sugar, eggs, 1/3 cup butter, milk, and vanilla extract. Spread the mixture evenly onto your baking dish.
  4. Mix the brown sugar, chopped pecans, flour, and 1/3 cup melted butter. Sprinkle this over your sweet potato on the baking dish. 
  5. Bake your casserole for approximately 35 minutes. Remove when a knife comes out of the centre clean.
