In honor of the season, I am including my family's favorite sweet potato casserole recipe!

Sweet Potato Casserole
  • 4 cups of sweet potato, cubed
  • 1/2 cup sugar (white)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans


Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Put the sweet potatoes in a pan with water enough to cover them. Cook over medium high heat until the potatoes are tender - pull the softened skins off, drain, and mash.

In a large bowl, mix together the sweet potatoes, sugar, eggs, salt, the 4 tablespoons of butter, milk, and vanilla until smooth, then put this mixture in a baking dish.

In a medium bowl, mix the brown sugar and flour. Cut in the 3 tablespoons of butter until it is coarsely mixed, then stir in the pecans. Sprinkle this mixture over the sweet potatoes.

Bake in the preheated over for 30 minutes, or until the topping is lightly browned.

This recipe is great for taking to family gatherings for the Holidays and Among Brenda's Quilts Home Cooking Casserole Cover Pattern is a great way to carry this dish!
