Sweet Potato Casserole With Pecan Topping

Sweet Potato Casserole With Pecan Topping

What a fantastic sweet potato casserole recipe. There is not a lot of sugar or seasonings in the sweet potato part, so the flavor of the potatoes shines. It's made with canned sweet potatoes, but fresh could easily be substituted. The sweetness comes into the recipe with the crunchy pecan topping. Sweet and rich, it's just right spread on top. The topping does make this a bit rich so a small serving goes a long way. A divine addition to your holiday feast.


  • 1 can canned yams, drained or 3 cups of cooked sweet potatoes (29 oz.)
  • 1/2 c butter, melted (1 stick)
  • 1/3 c milk
  • 1/2 c granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs, beaten

Pecan Topping

  • 5 Tbsp butter, melted
