Holidays are for family time and sweet potato casserole. This is one side dish that could be the main meal for me. I grew up looking forward to this Sweet Potato Casserole every Thanksgiving and Christmas. This recipe was created by my Grandma Sue and it doesn’t disappoint.

Sweet Potato Casserole

Since switching to the Paleo lifestyle, I have worked really hard to come up with a cleaner version of her recipe that still bring all the warm feelings of the holiday season. My Paleo version is still rich and creamy and comes with a crispy topping that is the best part. .

Sweet Potato Casserole

Although I love living healthy the majority of the time, I find that my Grandmother’s real version is worth the splurge. To support you guys, I have included both the full fat version along with my Paleo swap.

Tips for making the perfect Sweet Potato Casserole!

  • I usually peel and boil four large until they are fork tender. Cook on low for about an hour.  WATCH to make sure you don’t overlook. If the potatoes look like they are turning into mush then they are too done.
  • I find it easier to gradually add the melted butter to the topping mixture using your hand to mix. By gradually adding the butter it will allow the topping ingredients to not stick together as much. You want the topping mixture to be a crumbled look.
