I make this for the Thanksgiving dinner but you can make it anytime. It tastes more like a dessert but I justify this as a side dish since it has sweet potatoes in it.

Oh so yummy, this sweet potato casserole is more like a dessert than side dish. The sweet potatoes are moist, soft, and just melt in your mouth. On top is a crumble made of coconut, chopped pecans, and brown sugar. It's sweet and crunchy. The flavor of the coconut and pecans pair nicely with the sweet potatoes. We liked the addition of coconut to this topping. It adds a bit of wow factor to this easy dish.
