Sweet Potato Casserole

his recipe has always been a family favorite. That is why I jumped at the opportunity to share it after my Feed the Band interview with Haley May Campbell. Some of her favorite memories as a child revolved around a sweet potato casserole. We don’t do marshmallows, but a sweet candy top of pecans and coconut. The crunchy top compliments the warm soft filling of the sweet potatoes. I have no doubt that your family will fall in love with our take of sweet potato casserole.

The Filling

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees

  • Add the remaining ingredient and blend into the mashed sweet potatoes using the mixer.
  • We normally use a greased 13x9 pan. However, for a decorative approach we used 8 oz jelly jars. So prepare either one.
  • Add the filling evenly to the pan or jars.

  • Add to the oven and bake for 20 minutes. The top should be a nice golden brown when baked.
