Thanksgiving Side Dish: Tempting Sweet Potato Casserole

Enjoy a Classic Favorite This Thanksgiving With This Sweet Potato Casserole Recipe!


Sweet potato casserole belongs on the Thanksgiving table. It’s a classic that many of us love and adore. Whether you’re hosting the entire family or are looking for a dish to take to a pot luck party, this sweet potato casserole recipe is not one to miss. It’s easy, quick, but delivers delicious results that everyone will love!



  • 9 cups peeled and chopped sweet potatoes, about 4 large potatoes
  • 1 cup full-fat coconut milk (from a can)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Butter Pecan Topping

  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 5 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup pecans


Add the sweet potatoes to a large pot, cover with water and bring to a boil. Cook for 10-15 minutes until the potatoes are fork tender. Drain, then add them back to the pot or a large bowl.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and lightly grease a 9 x 13 casserole dish.


To the large pot or bowl with the cooked sweet potatoes, add the coconut milk, brown sugar, vanilla, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg and mash with a potato masher. Continue to mash or stir with a spoon until well combined.


Spread the potato mixture in the prepared dish, and smooth it out evenly with a spatula.


Make the topping: In a medium bowl, stir all the topping ingredients, except the pecans, together with a spoon. Use your hands if necessary until moist crumbs form. Now mix in the pecans.


Evenly sprinkle the topping on the sweet potato filling and bake for 35-45 minutes, until bubbly on the edges and the topping is golden brown. Serve immediately!
