Sweet Potato Casserole
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Bake: 25 min.
This was my 1st time Sweet Potato casserole. So I followed the recipe carefully. The only thing I did differently was use canned sweet potatoes. It looked so good that my husband of 55 years even took a bite to try it. He has never eaten sweet potatoes in any form. His face lit up and he loved them. I loved them. Next year when we can all gather it will be on the menu!
This reads like sweet potato pie without the crust--too sweet to be a side dish for my finicky family. If you use garnet yams/sweet potatoes and bake them for an hour, or until very soft, they will peel and mash easily. They will also be quite sweet naturally and you won't so much sugar.
I tried this and did not have coconut, which I think would be great. As I was getting ready to put in the oven I smelled bananas setting on the counter. Well guess what topped my dish. I sliced them and put a little brown sugar on top and put in the oven. I was in heaven. I will no longer have sweet potatoes without bananas.

This tasted just like the sweet potato casserole I grew up with. The only difference was a change to the topping. The coconut added a different flavor than what I was used to but it was a great change.
I never make turkey or ham without making this recipe. All of my family requests it. My husband eats it with the entree and he also eats a portion for dessert! Delicious with Walnuts, or pecans and with or without coconut. I sometimes do half pan coconut, half pan without coconut.
This was great! Only difference I did was add just a sprinkle of sea salt to the mashed sweet potatoes. Then to the topping added just a small touch of maple syrup. Then topped the topping with corn flake crumbs.
This is an easy, delicious recipe that I've been using for years - with the exception of coconut. It still tastes great without it.
Hi.What can I use in place of coconut?
This has been a family holiday favorite for over 20 years. I leave out the coconut because not everyone in my family likes it. Otherwise it is delicious.
