A traditional side dish that is prevalent on tables in fall meals like Thanksgiving and Christmas, you can still make this perfect side dish year round. Sweet potatoes are available in most produce departments no matter the weather and having a classic and tested recipe is important.

I hope you love this side as much as I do!

Sweet Potato Casserole Recipe

Preheat oven to 375 and grease a baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.

Place cut potatoes into a stockpot full of water.

Make sure the water is 1″ higher than the potatoes.

Heat on medium high heat until boiling. I would say about 30 minutes to cook the potatoes total. It’s like cooking pasta, but the potatoes are in the pan when you turn on the heat. You’ll need to bring the water to a boil and then boil. Once it begins boiling, you need about 15 more minutes.

Sweet potatoes are done when a fork is poked into the sweet potato and it’s soft. Drain off water.

**You can leave your sweet potatoes cubed or mash them for the casserole (This is shown as cubed)

In a small bowl, add butter, brown sugar, 1/4 cup of the pecans, vanilla, ground cinnamon, and nutmeg and mix well.
