Sweet potato casserole is the perfect side for Thanksgiving or Christmas. This recipe uses fresh sweet potatoes and slightly cuts back on the sweetness. We loved the oat topping. It's light, crumbly, crunchy, and super tasty.

How To Make amazing sweet potato casserole

  • Pricking washed sweet potatoes with a fork.
    Wash the sweet potatoes and poke them with a fork so they will not explode when baking.
  • Baking the sweet potatoes.
    Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour.
  • Whipping baked sweet potatoes.
    Let cool and then remove the outer peel and put into a large bowl and mix either with a stand mixer or a hand mixer. Try to get it as so smooth as possible.
  • Creaming butter and sugar.
    In another bowl cream the sugar and butter together till blended well.
  • Slowly adding eggs.
    Add the eggs one at a time and blend thoroughly after each addition.
  • Egg mixture added to potatoes with rum, coconut, and almond milk.
    Add the egg/sugar mixture to the potatoes and blend in. Then add the rum, coconut, and almond milk. Blend thoroughly.
  • Sweet potato mixture poured into a baking dish.
    Place into a pan sprayed with Pam (it makes the cleanup much easier) and smooth the top level.
  • Oatmeal, flour, and sugar in a large Ziploc bag.
    For the topping, add the oatmeal, flour, and sugar into a large Ziploc bag and shake well. Try to get it mixed equally.
  • Oat topping sprinkled over sweet potatoes.
    Take a handful of the topping and sprinkle on top of the potato mixture. I try to have an equal level of topping.
  • Pats of butter on top of the oat crumble.
    Cut the butter into small squares and place on top of the topping.
  • Baking the sweet potato casserole.
    Place into a preheated oven 350 F degrees for 45 minutes to an hour. Thanksgiving will never be the same without this dish being served!!!!
