Sweet Potato Casserole

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. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
