The Best Easy Sweet Potato Casserole Recipe – classic Thanksgiving holiday side dish made easy! The praline topping is irresistible!
Sweet Potato Casserole is my favorite Thanksgiving ( and holiday in general, because I make it for Christmas too ) side dish. It’s sweet, delicious and the praline pecan topping is amazing! For my marshmallow loving kids, I cover the top of this casserole with mini marshmallows and bake just until they are toasted. We never have leftovers from this dish!
This recipe makes the best and easiest Sweet Potato Casserole with the perfect texture and topping. It has been a family favorite for years!
HOW TO MAKE SWEET POTATO CASSEROLE
The best sweet potato casserole has to have the right texture. It needs to melt in your mouth, be smooth and not watery or soggy. This dish cuts really easy and won’t run all over your plate. Cut peeled sweet potatoes into large chunks and place in a large pot. Cover with water and cook until done. Drain really well. You can also cook sweet potatoes in the Instant Pot ( which is my favorite method ), just like I did in this recipe. Next, mash potatoes really well, until the texture is smooth. Let the potatoes cool for a little bit before adding the rest of the ingredients. Hot potatoes with scramble the eggs. Add butter, sugar, vanilla and eggs and mix well. Spread mixture in a buttered casserole dish, prepare the topping and sprinkle on top. Bake the dish and if desired, top with mini marshmallows and place under broiler or back into the hot oven to toast them.
HOW TO REHEAT SWEET POTATO CASSEROLE
To reheat a sweet potato casserole, preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Cover the dish with aluminum foil, to prevent the brown sugar pecan topping from burning, and bake for about 15 minutes.
