Rum and Sweet Potato Casserole

Rum and Sweet Potato Casserole

92

"This is a simple recipe for sweet potato casserole. But it is also the best I have tasted, enriched with eggs, milk, and rum, and topped with a crunchy pecan streusel. It is a standard at all holiday dinners in my family. The amount of rum can be varied according to taste (the casserole is also good without it.)"

I changed the recipe by using 1/2 cup of white sugar, 1/4 cup of spiced rum and added 2 cups mashed sweet potatoes (5 in total). I also used regular white flour. The rest I followed as instruc...

I have made this recipe for a couple of years, with some adjustments. Increase the amount of sweet potatos by 2 cups, cut the sugar to 3/4 cup, add 1/4 cup dark rum and 1/4 cup Grand Marnier. ...

No one, and I mean no one, at Thanksgiving dinner had had a better sweet potato dish! I wonder if the people who think it was too sweet used canned, which is packed in syrup. Use 6 to 8 good siz...

Excellent. Doesn't have to be served for a holiday - I served it at dinner club last night and everyone raved. I agree on the overpowering taste of rum though. Next time will only do 1/4 cup....

Excellent! I used Capt. Morgan's spiced rum and reduced the amount to 1/4 cup. This is a more sophisticated, complex tasting version of sweet potato casserole. I will never make the marshmall...

I followed the recipe exactly, and it was 100... no, 110% delicious! WOW! I made this to go with X-mas dinner, and will make it a new standard thing. Just fantastic!

slightly too sweet. would try less white sugar next time.

This is absolutely FANTASTIC. I made it on Thanksgiving and now I am committed to forever bringing it for every holiday celebration. It is very sweet and VERY heavy on the rum, so I'd cut back...

We have a favorite restaurant that makes an awesome sweet potato casserole and I thought I had found one that was close to it. Well.... Now I know I hadn't found it until I tried this recipe! ...
