How to Make EASY RUTH’S CHRIS SWEET POTATO CASSEROLE

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a medium-size casserole dish with nonstick spray.
  2. Combine brown sugar, flour, nuts and butter in mixing bowl. Set aside.
  3. Combine sweet potatoes, sugar, salt, vanilla, eggs and butter in a large mixing bowl in the order listed. Beat thoroughly with a hand mixer to increase the fluffiness of the sweet potato mixture.
  4. Pour mixture into buttered baking dish.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. (At this point, dish can be covered and refrigerated.)
  6. Sprinkle the surface of the sweet potato mixture evenly with the crust mixture and return to oven for 10 minutes. Allow to set at least 30 minutes before serving.
  7. The brown sugar and pecan crust should be slightly browned and crunchy.
  8. Two options for make-ahead:

    • Prep potatoes; spread in dish. Make topping; put in ziploc. Meal day~add topping and bake fully.

    • Prep potatoes; spread in dish. Make topping; reserve for next day. Bake potatoes. Meal day~add topping to potatoes and simply bake until heated through.
  9. Time Saving Tip:
    Ready to steam whole sweet potatoes can be found in the produce section of most grocery stores. They take 8-10 minutes in the microwave~so quick and easy! You just pierce the package and microwave.
