Rum and Sweet Potato Casserole

Recipe by  

"This is a simple recipe for sweet potato casserole. But it is also the best I have tasted, enriched with eggs, milk, and rum, and topped with a crunchy pecan streusel. It is a standard at all holiday dinners in my family. The amount of rum can be varied according to taste (the casserole is also good without it.)"

I changed the recipe by using 1/2 cup of white sugar, 1/4 cup of spiced rum and added 2 cups mashed sweet potatoes (5 in total). I also used regular white flour. The rest I followed as instructed and WOW - what a hit!!! I would DEFINITELY recommend this recipe for Thanksgiving you will NOT be disappointed!!! The topping is sweet and crunchy!!! Our family has been making it for the last 2 years and this year will be our 3rd...

This was a little too sweet for my liking. I'd suggest cutting the sugar in half and reducing the rum to 1/4 cup. I think that the natural taste of sweet potatoes is just as nice as this dish, without all the extra calories. Makes a nice side dish, but is rather time-consuming. Next time I'll just steam and mash my sweet potatoes with a little milk for a healthier dish.

I have made this recipe for a couple of years, with some adjustments. Increase the amount of sweet potatos by 2 cups, cut the sugar to 3/4 cup, add 1/4 cup dark rum and 1/4 cup Grand Marnier. We just love the flavor and texture of this recipe!

No one, and I mean no one, at Thanksgiving dinner had had a better sweet potato dish! I wonder if the people who think it was too sweet used canned, which is packed in syrup. Use 6 to 8 good sized sweet potatos, peel, quarter, and boil until tender. I used an electric beater to mash. Definately a keeper!

Excellent. Doesn't have to be served for a holiday - I served it at dinner club last night and everyone raved. I agree on the overpowering taste of rum though. Next time will only do 1/4 cup. Also won't add melted butter to topping mixture either - was difficult to spread. Omit melted butter for topping and you can sprinkle it on much easier. Thanx for the recipe!!!

Excellent! I used Capt. Morgan's spiced rum and reduced the amount to 1/4 cup. This is a more sophisticated, complex tasting version of sweet potato casserole. I will never make the marshmallow version again. Thanks Casey for sharing this terrific recipe!

I followed the recipe exactly, and it was 100... no, 110% delicious! WOW! I made this to go with X-mas dinner, and will make it a new standard thing. Just fantastic!
