Sweet Potato Casserole/Feasting in Fellowship!

This is the most delicious sweet potato dish I have ever tasted…period. This recipe comes from Southern Living. Not only is it absolutely scrumptious, it is beautiful! The perfect side dish to add to a special Thanksgiving meal.

Clean and pierce sweet potatoes. Bake in a 425 oven for an hour.

Take potatoes out of oven and let cool enough to touch. Slice open and scoop out insides into a large bowl (I use a serrated grapefruit spoon for this). Add sugar, egg, vanilla, salt and butter.

Beat well

Spoon mashed sweet potatoes in a casserole dish

For topping, crush cornflakes in a ziploc

Mix together butter, brown sugar, crushed cornflakes and pecans

Place topping at an angle onto mashed sweet potatoes and bake

Add marshmallows in between the other layers and place back into oven until golden brown.

  8. Made this for Thanksgiving and BOY! It was quite a hit!! Thank you for sharing! This is our new recipe <3

  9. I’ve made this twice now and it is phenomenal. The only addition I make is a tablespoon or so of ground cinnamon to the potato mixture. I couldn’t get past the idea of sweet potatoes without cinnamon!
