This Simple Sweet Potato Casserole has a creamy filling produced with canned sweet potatoes and is topped with a tasty brown sugar-sweetened pecan praline topping. Sweet potato casserole is a should-have, need to-make side dish for me at the holidays. I’ve pointed out this prior to but I would be completely content with a bunch of side dishes for holiday meals.
CAN I FREEZE SWEET POTATO CASSEROLE?
I do a ton of cooking on Thanksgiving and in excess of the years, I have discovered methods to make my recipes not only less difficult to whip up but nonetheless have that exact same great taste I really like. I use canned sweet potatoes or yams and I make this entire thing the evening prior to, pop it into the fridge and it’s prepared to bake the next day. Boom. If you want to prep this a couple of days or a lot more in advance, you can freeze it (just make sure you wrap it genuinely effectively.)
MARSHMALLOW TOPPING OR PECAN PRALINE TOPPING?
The pecan praline topping on this is my favored but I will by no means turn down a good ole marshmallow topping both. As an alternative of the pecan praline topping, you can leave it off and leading with marshmallow in the direction of the finish of cooking. If you put them on too early, they will burn up. Also, if you don’t like pecans in the topping, you can just depart them out. Any leftovers of this reheat genuinely well as well.
