 Southern Sweet Potato Casserole With Pecan Streusel

Believe it or not, Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away. My mouth is watering just thinking about all the delicious foods that will be on the dinner table.

The foods that we typically serve on Thanksgiving are generally appropriate most any time of the year. It’s really the combination AND quantity of foods that make Thanksgiving so special. My Southern Sweet Potato Casserole With Pecan Streusel is a dish that will always be on my holiday menu but I love to make it at least once a month whenever I can. The recipe that I am sharing today is the recipe that I make to serve a big group. I’ll typically halve the recipe when I am making it on a regular week for my family. It’s fantastic with pork or chicken and half the recipe usually is enough for dinner and leftovers the next day!

Why not add it to your menu this week as a trial run for your Thanksgiving dinner in a few weeks. I promise, your family will be very happy to see it on the menu as often as possible.
