This yummy casserole is always asked for, especially at holiday times and cook outs. Kids seem to love the marshmallow topping. It calls for whole yams or sweet potatoes, but we have also used canned.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups mashed sweet potatoes
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Topping Option 1:

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 to 1 cup chopped pecans

Topping Option 2:

  • 1 can crushed pineapple
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Boil the potatoes whole until tender. Remove and let cool completely. After the potatoes are cooled, put them in a large bowl and mash them as you would regular potatoes. Add the rest of the ingredients. Pour into a large buttered baking dish.

Cover the potatoes with the topping of your choice. If using topping 1, mix ingredients. If using topping 2, top potatoes with pineapple, then marshmallows.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 35 minutes.

Baked sweet potatoes with brown sugar and pecans.

Ingredients:

Directions:

Beat mashed sweet potatoes with white sugar, 1 stick of oleo, vanilla and eggs.

Place in greased 9 x 13 inch baking dish or casserole dish. I prefer the 9x13 inch dish because it makes it a bit thinner.

Mix brown sugar, 1/3 cup oleo, flour and nuts with your fingers. Place this on the top of the sweet potato mixture and bake in the oven at 350 degrees F for 1 hour.

Servings: 20
Time:15 Minutes Preparation Time
1 Hours Cooking Time

This is a favorite of my oldest daughter. She loves anything to do with sweet potatoes and the sweeter the flavor of the recipe, the more she likes it.

I also did a search on the thrifty fun website and couldn't find the recipe that you mentioned, however, when I did a search on google.com I found a few crockpot chicken and sweet potato recipes. Good luck and I hope you find what you're looking for.

Ingredients

  • 4 or 5 medium/large sweet potatoes, peeled, cooked and drained
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup soft butter or margarine
  • 1 cup sugar
Topping:
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans (or whatever nut you have, walnuts, hickory nuts, etc.)

Directions

Mix all ingredients above with a hand masher, not electric mixer. Pour into a 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Then put on topping.

For the topping: mix all topping ingredients. Crumble on top of sweet potato mixture. Bake 350 degrees F for 45 minutes.

Note: If you don't like nuts or are allergic, I have substituted old fashioned oats before. It is still good. I used 3/4 - 1 cup oats.
