Thanksgiving Bake and Blog: Sweet Potato Casserole!

Here’s what I did with my .38 cents a pound sweet potatoes I bought last week:  (Walmart had them on sale for .29 cents a pound too!)

We love sweet potato casserole!  I always make several of them for the days following Thanksgiving.  I use this recipe: 

Ingredients for Sweet Potato Casserole

  • 4 cups sweet potato, cubed
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon

 This is the topping:

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

The time consuming part of making the sweet potato casserole is peeling and cutting and baking the sweet potatoes.  Then you mash them up and mix them with the ingredients above and bake it. 

Save your scraps for composting, or if you happen to have a hungry pig you’re trying to fatten up…feed all the scraps to him! 

Here’s a small online picture of what it looks like — mine are still in the oven!
