Sweet Potato Casserole

The Classic Sweet Potato Casserole, a Thanksgiving essential, consists of velvety, buttery mashed sweet potatoes paired with maple syrup, eggs, and a crispy pecan streusel topping.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil (no need to salt). Add the sweet potatoes and cook until soft and very tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Drain and let cool.

Make the pecan streusel topping.

Mash the potato filling. In a large mixing bowl, mash the cooked and drained sweet potatoes with a potato masher, hand mixer, or just a large fork until very smooth.

Bake. Transfer the sweet potato mixture to a 1-quart baking dish and spread evenly.
