Looking for... your best sweet potato casserole recipe?

We aren't doing official Thanksgiving until Saturday, (a family member works at a hospital and they have no holidays) so if you have a recipe to share, please do! Generally, I skip the marshmallows though- and don't eat meat.

  1. Ooh, I'll be curious to see some of these as well. Thinking about scalloped sweet potatoes baked in heavy cream with fresh bay and roasted garlic for Xmas dinner.

    1. I haven't made this but am making it for tomorrow's Thanksgiving dinner. It is on the food network site from 5-ingredient fix. It is called Smokey Sweet Potato Souffle and has bacon, maple syrup and chipotles. Sounds excellent to me!!!

      1. Not a casserole, but I quarter them lengthwise, partially cook them in a microwave, toss them in olive oil, salt, pepper, and a mixture sold as Herbes de Provence (basil, fennel, marjoram, rosemary, lavender, tarragon, and thyme) and grill them on a gas grill with some wood chips in a smoker box.

        1. I make a sweet potato chorizo casserole. I alternate slices of baked sweet potato with chorizo cooked with onions and peppers, and cheese. It's a nice alternative to the usual icky sweet casseroles.

            That sounds wonderful. I make something similar with leftovers of grilled sweet potatoes and make a breakfast dish out of it by topping it with fried eggs. The addition of chorizo is definitely in my plans. Thx.

          2. Thanks for the suggestions. Guess I should have mentioned, I don't eat meat but it's always easy to leave out. I love the idea of chipoltes but since kids and others can't take the spice, will have to leave that for another time. I like the idea of a gratin.

              i know you said to skip the marshmallows, but even without them a lot of recipes tend to be on the sweet side. are you looking for something more savory (but not spicy)?

                I'm open to anything- though I generally use the warm spices on Thanksgiving.. I love the chipolte idea and will definitely make that later on. I generally do a casserole with peaches or pineapple and warm spices, but I don't add much sugar at all. Was looking for something new to try.

                  savory options:

                  use gruyere, make it with all sweet potato if you don't have butternut squash, and add a pinch of freshly grated nutmeg.
