Our Family Favorite Sweet Potato Casserole

Over the years I’ve tried just about every recipe involving Sweet Potatoes. Trying to find one that the majority of the family will eat has been a challenge. We were invited to a Thanksgiving dinner at some friends when the following was on the buffet table. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw each of my kids going back for seconds. I haven’t served Sweet Potatoes any other way other than fried since that day. This is a must on our Thanksgiving and Christmas menus. Hope you enjoy it too.

Sweet Potato Casserole

Sweet Potato Casserole


1. c. mashed cooked sweet potato (about 2 1/4 lbs.)
2. 1/3 c. firmly packed brown sugar
3. 1/3 c. skim milk
4. 2 Tbsp. margarine, melted
5. 1 tsp. vanilla extract
6. 1/2 tsp. salt
7. 2 egg whites, lightly beaten
8. Vegetable cooking spray
9. 1/2 c. firmly packed brown sugar
10. 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
11. 2 Tbsp. chilled margarine
12. 1/3 c. chopped pecans

Combine first 7 ingredients in a bowl, and stir well. Spoon sweet potato mixture into an 8-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Combine 1/2 c. brown sugar and flour in a bowl, and cut in 2 Tbsp. chilled margarine with a pastry blender or 2 knives until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in the chopped pecans, and sprinkle over sweet potato mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Serves 8.
