Sweet Potato Casserole with Crunchy Pecan Topping

The day after Halloween is when I start thinking about the special recipes I want to place on our Thanksgiving Dinner Menu, and Sweet Potato Casserole is always at the top of the list.

However, this year our Thanksgiving Day meal will only consist of the four of us so instead of making an entire Casserole, I decided that I would go this route instead….

I decided to make individual Sweet Potato Casseroles. Lucky for me, I found a great recipe by Robyn of the blog Add A Pinch. I enjoy Robyn’s blog as she shares simple, easy and delicious recipes for the everyday home cook along with plenty of discussion on life in the south, traveling and homeschooling her son.

When I asked Robyn if I could share her lovely recipe, I asked her to also share a bit more about herself: “Cooking for my family is my passion! I learned to cook as a young girl at my grandmother’s and mother’s knees and since marrying have been incorporating recipes and traditions from my husband’s family as well . Family recipes are indeed an heirloom and learning to prepare them for my family is one of the greatest gifts I can share. I love to create recipes and try new things. I build off of the solid recipes I was taught as a girl and continue to explore and discover new recipes my family enjoys.”

Lucky, for us she discovered her family loves Sweet Potato Casserole and allowed Robyn to share it with us:
