Cooking With Joy: Sweet Potato Casserole

We have never really had sweet potato casserole in the 7 years we have been together. Some people are very familiar with it as a Thanksgiving staple- not us! Although, we do like sweet potatoes in general so this was not a dish that scared us off.

I know that Jamie thinks there is something wrong with people who don’t like marshmallows- I’m guilty- never said I was perfect! Hubs and the kids like marshmallows, but I felt that since we were all going to be enjoying this dish, it would be better sans the white goo.

I “varaitioned” up this recipe. In my opinion the variation notes on the recipes are there for the reader/cooker to love these recipes and make them their own (right Jamie?). I have done this with many of the recipes so far and probably will continue.

Hubs and I are anti putting nuts into (on top is different) things- like why would someone ruin a decadent fudgy brownie with a walnut? I know people are into it, just not us. Rather than putting the pecans in the casserole I put them on top. And for an added sweetness, I used honey glazed and put about ¼ cup brown sugar into the mix.

The casserole came out really great- even our 2 year old couldn’t get enough of it!

  1. YOU ARE RIGHT RIGHT RIGHT SHOSHIE! I love how you cook! You are meant to make these recipes your own and I love that you know what you like and take the liberty to “variation” up the recipes to tweak and perfect them for your family.

    If using marshmallows with fish gelatin, for Kashrut reasons, one cannot serve it together with a meat dish. I was advised to have the S.P.Casserole first and then serve the rest of the courses.
