Sweet Potato Casserole with Crunchy Topping made our of real ingredients, sweetened with banana and orange zest. So easy and tasty.
I know what you’re thinking. It isn’t Thanksgiving. Why am I sharing a sweet potato casserole recipe with you. Honestly. WHY NOT?
What rule is there that we can’t make sweet potato casserole throughout the year? There isn’t.
Besides. This is so good. You’ll wanna make it for Christmas, New Years, Sunday Night Football, birthday parties and bring it anywhere where people will be eating. It’s that GOOD.
Okay. This isn’t your regular sweet potato casserole, this is my version. This sweet potato casserole is hitting the- is this a side dish, dessert, breakfast or snack- line. Can I eat this out of the casserole dish with a spoon? Do I have to share this with everyone? Yeah. I know.
I start off by roasting the sweet potatoes in the oven. That way they aren’t filled with extra moisture. Once they are fully cooked, I let them cool slightly, remove the skin, mash them and add in all the goodies. My goodies, my goodies, my sweet potato goodies. Yes. I went there. I went back in time to when Ciara brought this mega hit out. Hehehe.
