Sweet Potato Casserole

Each Thanksgiving, my niece Beth brings  is REQUIRED to bring our must have sweet potato casserole for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. For the past 10 years, I have forgotten to blog about it. So here it is, and if you like this type of casserole, it is a winner. My sister won't eat it. LOL

Sweet Potato Casserole

1/2 c sugar
1/2 t salt
1/2 t vanilla extract

Hello, I'm Debbie.I enjoy hiking, kayaking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the Adirondack Mountains (thus Mountain Breaths). I live in Upstate NY with my supportive husband and have three precious sons..


  1. My sister makes this and brings it to our Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. Everyone loves it and it's tradition here. LOL, a must have! Happy weekend....

  2. That is very close to my recipe, but a whole stick of butter and evaporated milk (the Southern way, lol!). We call it heart attack in a pan. 🤣 It's more like dessert!

  3. This recipe is how they make it in New Orleans, but with more butter. In Alabama it's all about the marshmallow topping! This recipe sounds yummy, and I'm pinning it for Christmas because Shanley Belle loves sweet potato casserole and pecans.

  4. Looks delicious Debbie. Southern style is my favorite.


I'm so happy you decided to stop by my blog. Please leave a comment as I enjoy hearing from each and every one of you!
