Thanksgiving is right around the corner. It will be here before you know it so you had better have your ducks in a row. I like to try out new recipes before the big day so I am sure my guests will be pleased with the results. I have tested this one many times so there is no need to make a trial run. However if you decide you must this casserole is absolutely scrumptious with baked chicken or roasted pork loin. This recipes makes about twelve servings so plan accordingly.

How to Make Sweet Potato Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Scrub, dry and prick sweet potatoes with a fork. Place on baking sheet and bake for 1 hour at 425 degrees or until fork tender turning the sheet halfway through the baking process. Let cool long enough to handle easily.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 9×13 inch baking dish.
  3. Scoop sweet potatoes out of skin with a spoon and place in large bowl. Add sugar, beaten eggs, salt, butter, evaporated milk, vanilla, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. Mix well with a spoon or on low with a hand held mixer. Spread the mixture in the greased baking dish.
  4. In a medium bowl combine brown sugar and flour. Using a pastry knife cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbled. Stir in pecans; sprinkle mixture over sweet potatoes. Bake for 30 minutes; turn the broiler on low for the last 1 1/2-2 minutes of baking just to lightly brown the top.
  5. Broilers can be unpredictable so stay close by and keep an eye on it.
