READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Marg CaymanDesigns

In an effort to eat healthier, I modified a family favorite so we could still enjoy it. The rest of the family couldn't even tell the difference! ;) My changes cut the calories by over 220 per serving (based on 6 servings) and the fat by over 50%!!! If you make it as written, 1/6 = 9 pts plus WW or 1/8 = 6 pts WW or 1/12 = 4 pts plus WW (52 points plus for whole recipe according to the recipe builder on their site)

Truly easy and delicious. I took this to Thanksgiving dinner and everyone loved it. It's not too sweet-- you can taste the sweet potatoes.
It worked with my substituting regular butter for light butter, and brown sugar for white, granulated sugar.
If you want a casserole that doesn't taste like a dessert item, this one is for you.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mash the sweet potatoes with ricer and stir in remaining casserole ingredients until well blended.
  2. Spread into a lightly greased 8-inch square dish.
  3. For the topping, mix the brown sugar, flour and pecans together. Drizzle the melted butter over the mixture while stirring to combine. Sprinkle over casserole.
  4. Bake uncovered at 350°F for 35 minutes.
  5. Can be served immediately, but we have found we like it better if it sets 10-20 minutes first.
