Sweet Potato Casserole - Southern Style

"I absolutely love this dish. I got the recipe from my mom, but have added a couple of things to it. It is usually something that our family makes for the holidays, but we love it so much that I make it throughout the year."

directions

  • Boil or microwave potatoes until tender. Wait for them to cool enough so, that you can peel them. The peeling should slide right off.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mash the potatoes.
  • Combine all the ingredients for the base.
  • Add them to the mashed potatoes and stir well.
  • After mixed, place in a casserole dish. I usually use an 8 x 14 rectangle. Depending on how little or how much you are making.
  • Combine ingredients for topping. Except marshmallows, if using them. The mixture should be kind of crumbly.
  • Spread evenly on top.
  • Place in oven and cook for 35 to 40 minutes.
  • When done spread marshmallows on top and put back in the oven for about 5 minutes or until golden brown.

    I make this recipe at Thanksgiving, and each year it gets rave reviews! I typically skip the marshmallows & almond extract, and substitute agave nectar for the sugar in the potatoes. Thanks for posting!

    WONDERFUL flavor! I cut the recipe in half since there are only two of us. I used brown sugar instead of white. This is the way we always have our sweet potato casserole in the South! Very, Very tasty and good for a potluck dinner. Prepared as a participant in the Southern, Cajun, Creole Tag September 2009 Event in the Cooking Photo Forum.

    Instead of almond extract I use orange extract and a small amount of frozen orange juice, makes flavor pop.
