One thing my family requests (and can count on) during the holidays is my Sweet Potato Casserole Recipe. It’s not just a tasty side dish, but it can also be a delicious dessert.

It is that good! Have you ever had a side dish that could substitute as a dessert? A little butter, a little baking, and a lot of good food.

Sweet Potato Casserole Gourmet Recipe

One of the best ingredients that can ruin or enhance a dish, in my opinion, is the type of butter you use. Using salted or unsalted butter (depending on the additional ingredients) can make or break it with flavor.

You can find small containers or sticks, and unsalted butter sticks are what you need is needed for this dish. (You don’t want to be too salty with this one.)

How to Make the Best Sweet Potato Casserole

I love to cook with sticks, but my reasoning has nothing to do with how it melts. I’m much more straightforward than that 🙂

I like the measurements on the wrapper. This genius idea that was thought of years ago allows me to see the amount of butter I am using efficiently. It keeps me sane when cooking, and it’s the little things like this that make me happy.

  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup Land O’ Lakes unsalted butter (softened)

Sugared Pecans Recipe

To Make the sugared pecans, you will need 1 lb. Pecan halves, one egg white, 1 cup white sugar, 3/4 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and 1 tbsp water.

Mix the egg white and water in a medium bowl until frothy. Add in the pecan halves and mix until covered. Add in the cinnamon, salt, and sugar and mix well until pecans are thoroughly coated.
