What happens when pumpkin pie meets pecan pie? This Sweet Potato Crunch is born!

For years our family made sweet potatoes for the sake of tradition on Thanksgiving. No one really ate them except maybe my Grandparents. Then about 10 years ago my Mom was given this recipe by a friend and we have never looked back! They are so gooood!

In the recipe below, I have the recipe for both a 9×9 and a 9×13! Now let’s get cooking!

I like to boil my sweet potatoes, but you can also bake your sweet potatoes. Just use whatever method you prefer!

How to boil Sweet Potatoes:

Fill a large pot about 1/2 way with salted water and bring to a boil. Add the potatoes and cook until tender, generally about 30-40 minutes.

How to bake Sweet Potatoes:

Preheat oven to 425º. On a baking sheet, poke the sweet potatoes all over with a fork. This allows the heat and steam to evenly cook your sweet potatoes all the way through. Bake until your sweet potatoes are tender, about 45-50 minutes

Again, I prefer to boil my sweet potatoes for this recipe. It helps keep the potatoes more moist. Once they’re tender and all the way cooked, peel sweet potatoes and add to the mixing bowl.The best Sweet Potato Crunch EVER! This is always a crowd winner! From overthebigmoon.com!


This Sweet Potato Casserole will be voted 'BEST SIDE' when served for your Thanksgiving or Christmas dinners! From overthebigmoon.com!

Enjoy! Trust me, your family will love them and it just might end up your new family tradition too!
