Would this recipe be enough for 15 people?
Hi, Pam! This recipe serves 8 to 10 people. I would double it if you want to serve 15.
Thank you so much!
Hi Pam! Claudia here, the Community Manager for Simply Recipes. The yield for this casserole is 8-10 people, so if you were feeding 15 people, I would double the recipe and you would have some for leftovers! If you end up doubling it, please let us know how it works out for you! Good luck!
My family loved this sweet potato casserole. It was delicious and full of flavor with all the spices and the zest of an orange. I will make this again!
Maple syrup plus brown sugar makes it too sweet for my family, so I leave out maple syrup. My family likes it better our way. I am 74yrs old And have been making this casserole for about 50yrs. It has been an old standby in my family
This recipe won’t print, so can’t make unless I get it into the kitchen.
Hi Loretta, have you tried clicking through to the print page for this recipe? https://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/sweet_potato_casserole/print/
I’m trying things out before the big day, and this is a hit. My family always made sweet potato casserole with OJ instead of milk, but I don’t think any of us had ever heard of ‘zest’. I agree, the marshmallows are just too much, and the pecans are such a nice touch.
This sounds amazing. Going to cook it. Can you tell me about how much sugar carbs calories. I really have to watch my sugar Really trying to eat healthy and cutting sugars and carbs
Hi, Bridgett! We don’t calculate nutritional information for our recipes, but here is our favorite online calculator: Very Well Nutritional Calculator.
We tried this for Thanksgiving, and it was delicious! Loved it!
Do you think this would reheat well? I’d like to make it Wednesday night to travel to Thanksgiving dinner with family. I need something that can be warmed back up in the oven without losing texture etc.
When I reheated the leftovers of this, I thought that the crumble lost some of its crunch, but it still tasted fine overall. The sweet potato base definitely reheats well. Does this help?
It did help! I reheated it and everything tasted fine.
The best way to make it ahead is do everything until the topping and sit it in the fridge, then add the topping, and bake before bringing it or bake it wherever you go if possible. The potatoes get amazing flavor this way and you don’t lose the crunchy bits. We never have leftovers of this so I wouldn’t know how it reheats after, but that’s the best way to make it ahead.
This is a good recipe for the but topping but my husband and I still love the marshmallow topping. If someone is allergic to nuts the marshmallow topping is the best. Put mini marshmallows on the sweet potatoes and bake at 350degress for about 20 to 25 minutes or until sweet potatoes are cooked. I have found that I can cook potatoes for about 20 minutes and then add marshmallows and cook about 15 to 20 minutes more. Since I can no longer stand and cook I use the sweet potatoes that you can find all ready mixed up then add more splenda and spices and gthden cook 20 to 25 minutes.
Thanks for the note on making the marshmallow topping, Mary King!
This is almost exactly our family sweet potato recipe we make every Thanksgiving and Christmas and it is AMAZING! Pretty much the only recipe we insist is there, even in place of the turkey!
Glad you like sweet potato casserole, too!
I just wanted to say how original this recipe is. I think it is a great idea and sweet potato is very good for you. Well done Lisa.
Thank you, Alida!
