My DD made the most wonderful Sweet Potato casserole-sans the marshmellows- ever. It had a crumbled brown sugar and pecan topping and I believe there were also chopped pecans in the casserole body itself.
Of course, she has lost it and doesn't remember where she got it.
Do any of you have a really great, unusual one for me to try?
I don't usually serve them as DH is not fond of them, but, this year my new SIL is here from the South, and I'm sure Thanksgiving would not be complete for him without one. Thank you for the help. KL

This is one of my favorites. I like the corn flakes in the topping.

Whenever you need a recipe go to www.allrecipes.com click on search, click on ingredient search and then fill in the ingredients you want and the ingredients you don't want. I found dozens of recipes that contained sweet potato, brown sugar and pecans and no marshmallows.

Here's a recipe I have used for many Thanksgivings. My family doesn't like marshmallow topping, so this is a perfect recipe for us. I usually use only yams (no sweet potatoes). But you can also use half yams and half sweet potatoes if you prefer (1.5 lbs of each).

Yam Galette
6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) butter
1/2 cup (packed) dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
1/2 teaspoon salt

Nonstick vegetable oil spray

3 pounds small slender yams (red-skinned sweet potatoes), peeled, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick rounds
1/4 cup all purpose flour

Lemon wedges

Melt butter in heavy medium saucepan over medium heat. Add brown sugar, ginger, lemon peel and salt; stir until sugar dissolves, about 4 minutes. Keep warm.

Position rack in top third of oven and preheat to 400F. Line 9- to 10-inch-diameter, 13/4-inch-deep ovenproof skillet with foil. Spray foil with nonstick spray. Toss sweet potatoes and yams with flour in large bowl. Add brown sugar mixture; stir to coat potatoes and yams. Arrange sweet potatoes and yams alternately in overlapping circles in prepared skillet. Spoon any remaining brown sugar mixture over potatoes. Press on potatoes to compact. Cover with foil.

Bake potatoes until just tender, about 1 hour. Uncover and press potatoes with metal spatula to compact. Continue baking until potatoes are very tender, pressing on potatoes occasionally, about 30 minutes longer. (Can be made 4 hours ahead. Let stand at room temperature. Rewarm in 400F oven about 30 minutes.) Let stand 10 minutes. Using oven mitts, invert skillet onto platter. Remove skillet. Peel off foil. Replace any pieces of sweet potatoes and yams that may have become dislodged. Cut galette into wedges; serve with lemon wedges.

Serves 6 to 8.

My MIL's recipe is a pecan-topped one. I modified it slightly to cut down on the sweetness and fat content.

Jean's Sweet Potato Praline Casserole

Topping:
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
3 Tablespoons melted butter
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Combine in a medium bowl and set aside.

Potatoes:
3 to 4 cups cooked, peeled, mashed (or riced) sweet potatoes
1/4 to 1/2 cup sugar (I use brown)
2 beaten eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup half-and-half (I use whole milk)
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)

Place potatoes in a large bowl. Gently fold in remaining ingredients. Spoon into greased 2 to 3 quart casserole dish. Sprinkle topping over potato layer. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 25 to 30 minutes or until bubbly and slightly toasted. WARNING: This stays HOT for a long time--be careful with that first taste!

OK, now I need to buy some sweet potatoes.....

I love sweet potatoes, and all of the recipes shared here sound delicious.

Dear Gabsmom, Your recipe sounds incredibly delicious! I am going out to the store in the morning to make that dish tomorrow night. I can't wait until Thanksgiving. Thanks for sharing.

FWIW, I usually quarter my sweet potatoes and roast them in the oven until they are nice and browned, tossed with a little extra virgin olive oil, sea salt and freshly ground pepper.

We can't stand sweetb potatoes without some heat. The rare time I make them, I boil them, mash, then add curry or cayenne.

Thanks all for the recipes. Just what I was looking for. I'm putting every one in the Thanksgiving file.
Now, does anyone have a recipe for my lost scalloped oysters? I tried on Vi's source,[a great one BTW], but nothing came up. TAB, KL

KL, I am that way myself, but I have gotten so "addicted" to Googling, I looked up scalloped oysters even though I never tried it for recipes before.As I do not eat shellfish I didn't have a recipe I could share. My son works in a restaurant and shucks oysters daily, but in his restaurant they are served raw. Well, I am rambling, happy cooking, Chayah

That is how I make them for a group too, although for "just us" I simply bake them like white potatoes. While a microwave does the trick, if you have the time to use the oven the inner skin gets all caramalized and good. (In fact, they can drip sugar that burns on the oven floor, so I put them on a piece of foil.) If you have only tried very sweetened recipes for "sweet potatoes" do give this a try sometime! (they are also good done this way on the grill)
