Sweet Potato Casserole With Coconut Recipe

Sweet Potato Casserole With Coconut

 

Here is a delicious recipe that I found on the Real Simply website that would be perfect for a family get together meal:

 

What You Will Need:

–   3 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces

–   kosher salt

–   1 cup sweetened shredded coconut

–   1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

–   1/2 cup chopped pecans

–   1/2 cup granulated sugar

–   1/3 cup whole milk

–   1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into pieces

–   3 large eggs

–   1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

 

What You Will Need to do:

1.   Preheat your oven to 325°F.

2.   Place the potatoes in a large pot and add enough cold water to cover.

3.   Bring to a boil and add 2 teaspoons salt.

4.   Reduce heat and simmer until very tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

5.   Drain the potatoes and return them to the pot.

6.   Meanwhile, heat oven to. In a small bowl, combine the coconut, brown sugar, pecans, and ½ teaspoon salt.

7.   Add the granulated sugar, milk, butter, eggs, vanilla, and ½ teaspoon salt to the potatoes and mash until smooth.

8.   Transfer the mixture to an 8-inch square or another shallow 2-quart baking dish and sprinkle with the coconut mixture.

9.   Bake until heated through (tent loosely with foil if the top browns too quickly), 30 to 35 minutes.

About Dino
There are many things that I love to do. One of those things is crafts! If I could find a job that involved crafts and being able to pay the bills, I'd be all over it! I've also found a great love for cooking and baking in the past few years. Sometimes there doesn't seem to be enough time in the day to be able to fully get into cooking and baking to the degree that I would like to. I've also found myself making a HUGE effort to save my family money. I'm still a beginner but I'm surprised at how many different ways I've found to save money, including starting to use coupons! I hope you enjoy all that I'm about to share.
