Sweet Potato Casserole

June 19, 2012Teresa

Sweet Potato Casserole is one of the most delicious, mouth-watering sweet potato casseroles you will ever eat! Every bite is scrumptious. The sweet potatoes are whipped up into a souffle with vanilla, eggs, sugar, and then a praline topping is added. Oh, my! Words don’t do justice to the amazing taste of this fantastic side dish. Our family loves this casserole every time I make it during the holidays. It is also a very requested recipe.

I received this recipe back in the early 1980s from a cook in our church who worked in the Pinellas County School System as a cook. She assisted our church’s head cook. If you like a Praline topping on your sweet potatoes, this recipe is for you. It’s fairly simple and just about everyone loves it even if they are not big sweet potato lovers.

Give this wonderful recipe a try sometime. You and your family will be so glad you did.

When I initially posted this recipe in June 2012 it was in the early days of my blog and my pictures were blurry, grainy, dark and less than appetizing because I only had a cheap iPhone 3 at the time. I’ve been going back through all those first year recipes where I used a poor quality camera and remaking the food so I can get better, eye-appealing pictures.

I recently remade this amazing dish (December 2015) for our Sunday school class’s Christmas party. It went over like gang busters. Even people that don’t normally eat sugar loved this recipe. The praline topping over top of a souffle-type base is amazing. I saw people going back for seconds and thirds.  I believe you’ll think so too.
