This Sweet Potato Casserole is creamy and topped with a brown sugar pecan crust, just like at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse.
One of our family favorites, sweet potato casserole, is often served at Thanksgiving dinner— and is as important as the ham and cornbread dressing. The secret is baking the sweet potatoes; that way, they retain more flavor.
The sweet potatoes are mashed with butter, brown and white sugar, milk, eggs, and spices. Then the mixture is topped with a crunchy pecan crust and marshmallows for the perfect blend of flavors and textures.
If you have to pick sides, I’d suggest this Sweet Potato Casserole! It’s a great compliment to the traditional Thanksgiving turkey or ham and can be served at room temperature. The brown sugar pecan topping gives this dish an added touch of elegance. I’m bringing it to my family gathering this year and can just see the smiles on everyone’s faces when the smell hits the air.

Classic Sweet Potato Casserole with marshmallows and toasty pecans throughout is a traditional side at our family Thanksgiving table.
3–4 medium sweet potatoes, baked
1/4 c condensed milk
1/4 c evaporated milk
1 c white sugar
1/4 c brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cardamom
1/2 c brown sugar, packed
1 c pecans, chopped
1 c marshmallows
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a baking dish.
Peel baked potatoes and place in mixer.
Mix together the sweet potato, milk, brown sugar, vanilla, spices, and eggs.
Transfer mixture to the prepared baking dish.
For the topping: Combine the flour, brown sugar, and butter in a medium bowl until moist and the mixture clumps together. Stir in the pecans and marshmallows. Spread the mixture over the top of the sweet potatoes in an even layer. Bake until mostly set in the center and golden on top, 25 to 30 minutes. Serve hot.
You can boil the sweet potatoes also; baking preserves more flavor.
What could be better than Honey Baked Ham? Well, some say there is no substitute for HoneyBaked ham, but this pineapple brown sugar ham recipe will leave you more than satisfied.
If you want to prepare an amazing and unforgettable holiday dish that is fast, easy, and sooooo delicious, this pineapple brown sugar ham is definitely a recipe you need. I am sure you will love it!
This pineapple brown sugar ham will be gone before you know it!
I got this recipe from my mother-in-law, and I usually cook it at least once a year, for either Thanksgiving or Christmas.
WHAT’S THE TRICK TO THIS HONEY-BAKED HAM DUPE???
What’s the trick, or what makes this recipe different? A brown paper bag! It’s true! The bag not only helps with flavoring it also pulls the extra sodium out of the ham, so you don’t have a “salty pig.”
Where do you get a brown bag? Most of your grocery stores always ask “paper or plastic” right? just ask the cashier for an extra unused bag!
The brown sugar and pineapple juices caramelize on the outside of the ham, creating a delicious crispy crust. This is one of those super easy recipes that are so good you’ll want to make it again and again. The ham will be tender and juicy, and it has a delicious brown sugar crust on the outside. You can serve this with pineapple rings or slices, but I like to serve it with some pineapple sauce for extra flavor.
This is a great recipe to make if you’re hosting a large crowd at your home, especially for the holidays. It’s easy to make and has very few ingredients. I would recommend using a spiral-cut ham, but you can use any kind of ham that you like.
Ahh, the classic holiday ham. A delicious addition to your family’s Thanksgiving or Christmas meal.
