I've been tweaking this recipe for years. The result is a great combination of sweet, creamy, and crunchy that everybody loves! It is a great addition to any Thanksgiving table.

This pumpkin casserole will soon replace sweet potato casserole at your holiday meals. The pumpkin filling is creamy and slightly sweet with just the right amount of spices. Sprinkled over the casserole is a golden brown topping that adds a little crunch. You could easily describe this casserole as an upside-down pumpkin pie. Is this a dessert? A side dish? Who cares! It's delicious. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
