I made this to take along to a a Thanksgiving dinner. This is a very forgiving recipe. I only used 2 lbs of sweet potato, not 5 but I forgot and followed the recipe, including the topping, for 5 lbs - no worries, it was sweet but not icky sweet like the stuff with marshmallo topping. Then, my son tipped the casserole on the way to dinner - no worries, I just mixed-in the topping and it tasted fine. I'm sure it would have been even better without all the mistakes :).
Oh, my! This was wonderful. I'm not a big fan of sweet potato casserole, mostly because I don't care for the marshmallow topping on most, but I'll make this recipe again and again. This topping was awesome and the potatoes light and fluffy. Thanks for sharing this scrumptious recipe.
This was a big hit for my family- even the toddler wanted more. I halved the recipe and it was a perfect fit in my 8X8 casserole dish.
I love love love this sweet potato casserole recipe. I've made it at least 4 times over the past year. My topping is never as thick as the photo- so if you want a thick crust follow GaylaJ's recommendations. I don't mind the thinner crust and make it as written.
Very good! I baked it in a deep oval casserole dish, rather than a 9X13-inch, so I added to the baking time. The topping amount was about right for the dish I used, but I think if I were to use the 9X13 called for, I would increase the topping ingredients. This was a wonderful Thanksgiving side--thanks for posting!
