Everyone at my house likes this at Thanksgiving. You can add any spices you want to the sweet potato like cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger etc. The topping is nice and crunchy.

This is an excellent dish, though I did make some adjustments. Those who said this was almost a dessert were not joking. This *is* a dessert! Texture is that of a chiffon/whipped sweet potato pie, that close southern cousin to pumpkin pie. I decreased the sugar to 2/3rds but could have cut it back even more and been happy. The topping really provides enough sweetness. For those with nut allergies, I substituted 2/3 cup dry oatmeal for the pecans, and just toasted it in a non-stick frying pan with the butter until very lightly browned. Add the brown sugar and keep stirring over medium heat until sugar melts and *just* starts to clump. add the flour. The crunchy sugar and oats provides the same/similar texture of the nuts.

This sweet potato casserole is just like the one they serve at Damon's Restaurant (if anyone else craves it as much as my husband)!
