Sweet Potato-Pecan Casserole

October 2, 2017

 

Thanksgiving dinner is always extra special. A little more effort, a little more care to celebrate the holiday and give thanks. Thanks for a good harvest, thanks for a good year, thanks for family and friends. A lot of thought goes into this big dinner, and although most of us have our traditional go-to turkey and sides, it's sometimes nice to add a new addition to our feast. This year, surprise your guests with this sweet potato casserole. You will be glad that you did! 

 

INGREDIENTS

 

  • Cooking spray

  • 3 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes (about 5 medium), peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks

  • 1/3 cup honey

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger

  • Kosher salt

  • 1 tablespoon packed dark brown sugar

  • 1/3 cup finely chopped pecans

 

 

DIRECTIONS
