Sweet Potato Casserole

This is a classic holiday recipe. My Mom certainly put on a show during the several holiday’s that she cooked a full table. This is a great keeper for your recipe book.


6 normal sized sweet potatoes

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

2 eggs

1/3 cup half and half

1/2 cup melted butter


1 cup brown sugar

2 tbsp. flour

1/4 cup butter

1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

1/2 cup shredded coconut


Peel and cut potatoes in big chunks; boil until tender

Place all ingredients in the potato list in a mixing bowl. Combine all ingredients and use an electric mixer, mix well until smooth.

Grease a casserole dish/pan and place the potato mix in the greased pan.

Combine all ingredients for the topping, except coconut and chopped nuts. Cut the butter, flour, and brown sugar using a pastry cutter.

Spoon over sugar mix over potatoes.

Sprinkle the nuts and coconut over the sugar mix.

Bake at 350F for approximately 35 min or when the coconut starts to brown.

This is a nice side dish for a full course holiday meal. It goes great with Turkey, Ham, Roast or Pork. I hope you like this as much as I have. Thanks Mom!
