The Ultimate Sweet Potato Casserole

The recipe is for the Ultimate Sweet Potato Casserole that anyone can make. I have to come clean and say that up until now I did not like sweet potatoes. Something about the way they look, their texture and their flavor used to really weird me out. I’ve tried to enjoy them many different ways and it has always been a no go for me. Recently I was sent a bunch of sweet potatoes from my weekly produce delivery service and I needed to figure out what to do with them. Mister Tipsy on the other hand loves sweet potatoes so he was excited for me to create a recipe for him to enjoy. When I perused my pantry to see what I had on hand, the idea of The Ultimate Sweet Potato Casserole was born.

Gather Your Ingredients

You do not need a ton of ingredients to make this recipe. A lot of the ingredients you probably have on hand. What you will need to make this recipe is:

(exact measurements are in the recipe card below)

  • About 4 to 6 cups of diced sweet potatoes (this depends on how much you want to make)
  • 2 Eggs
  • Brown Sugar
  • Salt
  • Heavy Whipping Cream
  • Butter
  • Maple Syrup

You will also need a casserole dish, like the size you use for brownies and some non stick spray. You will also need a bowl and fork to whisk the eggs and cream plus a rubber spatula, a pot and a potato masher.

Very Simple!

How To Make The Ultimate Sweet Potato Casserole

Making The Ultimate Sweet Potato Casserole is very simple. You do not need to have any special cooking skills or equipment. Basically all you have to do is boil some potatoes, mash them, mix a bunch of stuff and bake! Here is what you need to do to make the ultimate sweet potato casserole.

  1. Peel and chop up your sweet potatoes, I used about 8 small sweet potatoes. You want to have about 4 to 6 cups of potatoes.
  2. When the sweet potatoes are cooked, drain them well and half the stick of butter to the sweet potatoes.
  3. Let the butter melt in a little bit then use your potato masher to mash them up until they have no lumps.
  4. Sprinkle the potatoes with your salt and brown sugar and fold that in. then add your maple syrup.
  5. In a separate bowl whisk your eggs and heavy cream and fold that into the sweet potatoes.
  6. Spray or grease your casserole dish, add the sweet potato mixture and dot the top with the rest of the butter.
  7. Bake at 375 degrees for about 35 to 35 minutes (every oven cooks differently) You will know this is done when the top is golden brown and the whole casserole has risen throughout the dish.
