The Best Sweet Potato Casserole recipe with a crunchy pecan streusel topping!

Ingredients

For the Mashed Sweet Potatoes:

  • 4 large sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

For the streusel topping:

  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

Instructions

  1. Cook sweet potatoes in desired manner, until soft. See notes.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a 2 qt baking dish with nonstick spray (I use coconut oil spray). Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine cooked sweet potatoes, granulated sugar, salt, vanilla, eggs and melted butter. Beat with an electric mixer for about 4-5 minutes, until fluffy and smooth.
  4. Pour into prepared dish. Bake for 25 minutes.
  5. While baking, prepare streusel topping by combining brown sugar, flour, pecans, and melted butter in a small bowl. Mix with a fork and set aside.
  6. Sprinkle the baked sweet potato mixture with streusel and return to oven for about 10-15 minutes until crumble is lightly browned. Serve immediately or cover with foil and serve in 30 minutes.

Notes

For the sweet potatoes you can cook them your favorite way. Bake in a 400 degree F oven for one hour. Or pierce with fork and microwave for 15 minutes (or more depending on size). Or peel and boil them for 30 minutes.
