Sweet Potato Casserole

This was always a hit at Grandma’s Holiday dinners, whether it be Thanksgiving, Christmas or Easter.  Depending on which grandchild you ask, some will call it a casserole, some will call it”yum – yum”.   You can make this with or without nuts (we prefer without and adjust the topping recipe for one and a half of what is listed below.)


  • 3 cups of cooked sweet potatoes, peeled and mashed
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 stick of melted butter (or margarine)
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 2 eggs
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla

Preheat oven to 350°.

Blend all above ingredients until smooth and pour into a greased casserole dish.



  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup of self-rising flour
  • 1/2 stick of butter (or margarine)
  • 1 cup of chopped nuts


Blend together with a hand chopper if there are nuts to make them fine, or simply use a fork if you leave the nuts out.

Bake at 350° for 35 minutes.  Enjoy!!!
