The Best Sweet Potato Casserole Recipe Ever

Sweet potato casserole is a classic holiday dish. It may even be your favorite! There are a lot of different ways to make it too, but this is hands down the best sweet potato casserole recipe EVER. Try it and we bet you’ll agree!

I made this dish for a family gathering of about 30 people. I only made one pan because I knew of several who weren’t fans of “sweet potatoes”. Well, they have never had this. It was passed around the table and was pretty much gone by the time I got it. By that time some of the little ones were already asking for seconds!

So if you want to have the most popular dish at all of your family gatherings, you’ve got to try this sweet potato casserole. The marshmallows, pecans and the sugar really come together to create the perfect, delicious topping.

One of the reasons this recipe is so tasty is because it’s been a long time work in progress. I’ve combined a few recipes over the years and found a perfect balance. Yummy! Thanksgiving is not Thanksgiving without the sweet potatoes and this sweet potato casserole is the best I have ever had. Make it. You can thank me later.

The Best Thing About This Sweet Potato Casserole

What I love most about this sweet potato casserole recipe is that it is so easy to throw together! You probably have everything on hand already (except for sweet potatoes, pecans, and marshmallows) which is super convenient. On top of that, this recipe only takes about 15-minutes of prep. How great is that?

After you get the ingredients put together simply pop it in the oven for 30-minutes and you’re good to go. If you wanted to, you could even prep this recipe the night before, leave it in the fridge, and then bake it the next day.

Speaking of keeping things in the fridge, this sweet potato casserole makes for some great leftovers. However, you’ll be lucky to even have any actually left over because it will probably all get eaten!
