This sweet potato casserole with meringue and pecan crumble is a sophisticated update on the classic Thanksgiving side dish.
I’ve always been a bit lukewarm about the ubiquitous sweet potato casserole. Sure it seems like a good idea, with the warm and gooey marshmallows on top, but it always feels a bit one dimensional to me when I eat it. So I decided it was time for me re-work the recipe. First I added a little bit of dimension to the sweet potatoes by using bourbon and maple syrup. Then I added a pecan crumble topping for texture. Finally, as a nod to the classic marshmallow topping, I made a brown sugar spiced meringue filling. This is what I always wanted my sweet potato casserole to taste like. The same sweet potato casserole that most people love, only better! Visit the Anolon site for this Maple Sweet Potato Casserole with Meringue and Pecans Crumble recipe.

Your recipe looks and sounds fantastic– as usual. But call me crazy — I can’t eat sweet potatoes without sprinkling a hefty amount of chipotle seasoning on it 🙁 I love that smokey spicy taste and it just gives the sweet potato another layer of taste. If I got a hold of your luscious casserole I’d probably sneak a sprinkle or two of chipotle seasoning. Frankly I think I’m addicted to that stuff. Great recipe!! Beautifully presented.
