Sweet Potato Casserole is a good example of a simple and easy to make sweet potato dessert. I never thought that this simple recipe will result into something really good. Anyone can make Sweet potato casserole because the steps are very basic. I am sure that you will like what you will be making.
I started by peeling and slicing the sweet potatoes into cubes and boiled them afterwards. You can also boil the sweet potatoes with skin-on and then peel them after boiling. Once the potato is ready, I used a potato masher to mash them – a fork can be used as an alternative tool if you don’t have a potato masher.
The next step is all about combining and mixing the ingredients which will then yield the sweet potato mixture. You will need a deep baking pan at least 3 inches in height. Arrange the potato mixture in the baking pan and spread. The last thing that we need to prepare is the topping. This can be simply done by combining and mixing the remaining ingredients and top it over the sweet potato mixture. The pecan chips will then be spread on top of the topping as our final layer. Easy isn’t it? Then we bake the sweet potato casserole until it’s just about right.
