Cooking Up: Sweet Potato Casserole with Coconut

Sweet Potato Casserole with Coconut recipe

Sweet Potato Casserole with Coconut

At first bite, this sweet potato casserole melted in my mouth and the decadent praline-style coconut topping had a nice crunchy-sweet-chewy feel. It’s definitely a recipe that wears two hats, technically a vegetable, but tastes way more like dessert. Think of it as a new twist on the traditional sweet-potatoeswith-marshmallows standby. We’re joining friends for Thanksgiving this year and I know they love coconut. So, when I saw this recipe in Real Simple, I had to give it a try. It’s pretty heavenly and even got kid-approved by my youngster. The picture above is a half-recipe (about 2 big sweet potatoes).

Easy to make, with a straight-forward ingredient list, allot about 1 hour, 15 minutes from first chop to out of the oven. Almost an hour of that time is hands-off cooking time. Or make it a day in advance and warm up on Thanksgiving Day. Serves 8. Contains: dairy, nuts and eggs.

Just take a gander at the ingredient list and you’ll see why this tastes so yummy. Here’s the link to the full recipe on my site or you can see it at Real

Enjoy yourself at the big feast this week!

  1. Funny, I was going to try a sweet potato casserole that was topped with coconut this year. The recipe I saw incorporated crushed pineapple in the recipe. They both look divine, I’m going to have trouble deciding between the two.
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Laura!

  2. I just copied the recipe! Thanks!

  3. I love both sweet potatoes and coconut so this recipe is right up my alley. Thank you.

  4. That sounds heavenly. I want some so badly right now!
