Individual Sweet Potato Casseroles
I’ve already made it twice this Thanksgiving season!
I remember on our first Thanksgiving as a newly married couple away from our families, my husband called his mom for the recipe she always used to make at the holidays.
That’s his handwriting below and as you can see, the recipe card has grown worn and warmed bellies for a lot of years.
Year after year I’ve added a few notes as I tweak it a bit, and put a few more food splatters appear my favorite recipe card!
We like our sweet potato casserole with the crumbly sweet topping, which makes it taste like a dessert!
Doesn’t it always seem like you never get quite enough of the crumble when you plate up a serving from the casserole dish?
I want a bite of crumble with every forkful! Well, this year I decided to personalize the casserole with individual servings using ramekins.
I can make each dish “to order”, leaving out the nuts for my son (sister is rolling her eyes).
If someone likes the traditional marshmallows on top, those can be added easily.
Can you tell which serving is sans nuts? Hint: it’s one of the green ramekins.
What about now?? Yep, the one up front!
Everyone liked the idea of having their own casserole. It didn’t take up room on an already full plate and each bite was full of scrumptious crumble!
- 3 cups cooked mashed sweet potatoes - for canned, use approximately 3 - 16 oz cans (drained and rinsed); if fresh, use about 5 medium sized potatoes.
- 1/4 - 1/2 cup sugar
- 4 Tablespoons butter
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/3 cup milk
- I doubled this so I could have leftovers to make it again
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/3 cup butter at room temperature
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
I used 6 ramekins, but have also stretched the recipe to 8 filling each dish up with 3/4-1 cup of sweet potato filling.
