Sweet Potato Casserole With Pecan Crumble Topping

This Sweet Potato Casserole with Pecan Crumble Topping is so delicious and it’s like eating dessert with your meal. This dish is full of flavor and the crunchy pecan topping makes it extra special.

I like to prepare this the day before I am going to serve it and refrigerate until ready to cook. I love having easy recipes like this that I can make ahead of time and then pop in the oven

This sweet potato casserole is my husband’s favorite dish at Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Sweet Potato Casserole

I have made this using canned sweet potatoes and by cooking my own sweet potatoes. Either way is good so if you are in a time crunch canned sweet potatoes work great.

Hello! This sounds delicious! If I wish to double the recipe, how long do you suspect I would need to cook it? My guess is around 45 minutes but I just wonder if you had ever doubled it and what you found to be a good cooking time. Thank you!

Hi Amber! I have not ever double the recipe but if I did I would probably cook it in 2 separate pans so the cooking time would not change. I'm not sure what the cooking time would need to be if you cooked it all in one pan. If you try it let us know how it does.
