This savory sweet potato casserole is so good! Everything is better with bacon!!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is not your typical sweet potato casserole that you have during the holidays, it's more savory than sweet. The potatoes are whipped and creamy with just enough spices to keep it from being bland. I really love the hint of garlic, it's a nice surprise. The topping really makes this dish special. The brown sugar crystalizes on the bacon while baking and gives the topping a nice crunch. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Bacon and Brown Sugar Topped Sweet Potato Bake

Step-by-Step

  1. Bake sweet potatoes for approximately one hour in a 350 degree oven. Let cool until you can touch them and peel sweet potatoes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350. Grease a casserole dish with cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, mash sweet potatoes. With electric mixer, beat in all ingredients EXCEPT bacon and brown sugar. Beat until well blended and spread evenly into casserole dish.
  4. Fry bacon until crisp.
  5. Crumble bacon and combine with brown sugar. I like to process mixture in food processor.
