Sweet Potato Casserole Recipe

I am making this for the Grace Episcopal Dinner Church Thanksgiving meal.

For the casserole:

  • 1 (29 oz) can sweet potatoes, drained
  • ½ cup salted butter, melted
  • ⅓ cup milk
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs, beaten

For the topping:

  • 5 tbsp salted butter, melted
  • ⅔ cup brown sugar
  • ⅔ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chopped pecans


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, mash the sweet potatoes and stir in melted butter, milk, sugar, vanilla extract and beaten eggs. Stir until combined well. Pour sweet potato mixture into a 2-quart (8-inch square) baking dish.
  2. In a bowl, combine the melted butter, brown sugar, flour and chopped pecans. Use a fork or your fingers until mixture becomes small crumbles.
  3. Sprinkle crumbles over sweet potato mixture.
  4. Bake uncovered for 30-40 minutes until topping is golden brown. Let casserole cool for at least 15-20 minutes before serving. This is important as the casserole will set-up as it cools.
