Crowd-Pleasing Sweet Potato Casserole

Yield: 10 to 12 servings

This crowd-pleasing sweet potato casserole has both a pecan topping and a marshmallow topping for the best of both worlds! My favorite Thanksgiving side dish has been sweet potato casserole...

    Love that you used maple syrup as the sweetener! I bet it adds another great layer of flavor!

    Everything about this sounds so good, I love the pecans on top. A great topping is the key to Sweet Potato Casserole! This makes me so excited for Thanksgiving!

    I split the recipe in half and made it for my boyfriend and I to accompany a maple glazed pork tenderloin I made this past weekend. This was AMAZING! I have a feeling this is going to be an oft-made side dish from now on. The maple syrup really makes this dish and adds a great subtle flavor to the sweet potatoes.

    Made this for today and everyone LOVED it. It was perfect since I couldn’t decide on which toppings to use. I didn’t have maple syrup so I added a little brown sugar. And the parchment paper for roasting saved on washing dishes time. Thank you for our new go to recipe

    I made this recipe for Christmas dinner and it was a HUGE hit! 2 of the people didn’t like sweet potato and another didn’t like sweets and they all loved it and got seconds. Everybody alao raved about how pretty the dish was. I will be saving this recipe to make again. Only changes I made to the recipe was add a teaspoon of cinnamon to the sweet potato mash and omit the flour in the pecan mixture.

    Can this dish be made ahead and refrigerated, then cooked for the meal? Seems like it, Maybe not put the pecan mixture on until ready to put in oven? Trying to plan my Thanksgiving meal prep. Thanks.
