Mashed sweet potatoes topped with a buttery, crunchy pecan crumble makes this easy recipe a Thanksgiving favorite. It’s the perfect sweet decadence right on your T-day plate, nestled in there with the turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, and stuffing. It’s SO GOOD that you’ll have to go back for sweet potato casserole seconds, which is definitely allowed on Thanksgiving. Or you might just finish the entire thing off like we did at Ruth’s Chris this weekend, along with two USDA prime steaks sizzling hot and lobster mac & cheese.
Go ahead, put some lovin’ in your oven and be the star this Thanksgiving. All you need is a well-stocked pantry, a nifty casserole dish and hungry mouths to please. Too busy with the turkey? The Sweet Potato Casserole is available in family-sized portions at Ruth’s Chris!
