This is an old recipe that I tweaked ever so slightly. The topping is delicious. The old recipe used to call for Corn Flakes, but I modified the topping to a more caramel-like topping that comes out sweet and delicate. This has a pudding-like texture and would be great topped with some Cool Whip.

Sweet potato casserole is a delicious side dish for Thanksgiving or Christmas. This easy recipe is sweet and savory. Many sweet potato casseroles have a marshmallow topping, but not this one. Brown sugar, butter, and pecans are combined for the perfect topping. It caramelizes while baking and really makes the dish. The Test Kitchen
