Yam Casserole

This yam casserole recipe is made with fluffy sweet potatoes topped with a crunchy, candy-like topping. It’s the ideal Thanksgiving side dish to make in advance!

Yams Dark brown sugar Butter Milk Eggs Salt Ground black pepper Vanilla Flour Pecans


Boil yams for 15 minutes. Place the strained, cooked yams in a stand mixer along with all the other ingredients for the filling. Blend with a paddle attachment until smooth.


Mix the flour, butter, brown sugar and pecans together with your hands until crumbly. Sprinkle the topping over the yam casserole dish.


Bake the yam casserole for 25-30 minutes until the topping is golden brown. If you want to add marshmallows to your yam casserole, you can sprinkle 2 cups of mini marshmallows over the casserole after 20 minutes of baking.


Pop the casserole back in the oven for 5 more minutes to brown the marshmallows and finish cooking the casserole. This is a great way to add a little sweetness and eye appeal to the dish. 


Whether you call them yams or sweet potatoes, there’s something to be said for this classic Thanksgiving dish.
