The Best Sweet Potato Casserole Ever


 

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups mashed sweet potatoes
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 1 c packed brown sugar
  • ½ c all-purpose flour
  • ⅓ c butter, melted
  • 1 c chopped pecans
  • Marshmallows – optional

Directions:

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the sweet potatoes, sugar, eggs, milk, salt, ⅓ cup butter and vanilla. Mix together and pour into a greased 9”x13” baking dish. (Your casserole can be frozen at this stage.  When you are ready to cook, proceed to Step 2.)
  2. To prepare the topping, combine in a separate bowl the brown sugar, flour, ⅓ cup melted butter and pecans. Mix together and crumble over sweet potato mixture. Bake uncovered at 350°F (175°C) for 35 to 45 minutes.
  3. If desired, add marshmallows to the top of casserole during the last 15 minutes of baking.  Check periodically to make sure marshmallows do not burn.

Make Ahead Note:

  • Prepare your sweet potatoes the night before.  Bake at 400°F for one hour.
  • Turn off the oven (baked potatoes may remain in the oven for up to 2 hours more.)
  • Prepare the casserole according to the recipe, except for adding the topping. 
  • Refrigerate up to 24 hours prior to baking.
  • When you are ready to bake, allow the casserole to warm to room temperature.
