Streusel Yam Casserole

This creamy yam casserole has been handed down for generations. I have taken the honor of serving this family favorite at Thanksgiving and Christmas. With one mixing bowl, ingredients are mixed all together, poured into a casserole dish, topped with brown sugar, flour, and butter to make a crunchy caramelized top. This recipe can be made a day in advance and kept in the refrigerator either before or after baking time. I've had people tell me they "don't like yams" until they taste this one!

Sweet potato casserole is a staple holiday side and this easy recipe is delish. It's sweet enough, some may consider it a dessert. Using canned yams means it can be made in no time (and as V points out it can be prepped the day before). The casserole part is buttery, creamy, and sweet. We loved the streusel. Once it slightly cools, it creates a yummy sugary topping. This is going to become a must-make holiday side dish. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
