Southern Sweet Potato Casserole



This is a Thanksgiving staple in our home, but we also have it for Easter with ham every year. It’s simple enough, one of the few recipes I got straight from my grandmother. Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!


Southern Sweet Potato Casserole

3 c sweet potatoes, cooked, mashed

1 c sugar (I cut this in half now)

1 t vanilla

1/3 c milk


1 c brown sugar

1/2 c butter

1/3 c flour

1 c chopped pecans

Combine all ingredients except topping, mix until blended and pour into 13×9 baking dish. Sprinkle topping over potatoes and bake for 25-30 minutes 350 degrees. Serves 10-12.
