Meghan's Favorite Sweet Potato Casserole Recipe

After working at Ruth's Chris as a hostess through college, I couldn't get enough of the Sweet Potato Casserole! Here is the recipe for the "Ruth's Chris Sweet Potato Casserole" that I have made year after year for my family. Pro Tip- save a little bit for dessert later and serve with vanilla ice cream 🤤



Crust:

3/4 Cup Brown Sugar

1/4 Cup Flour

3/4 Cup Chopped Pecans

1/4 Cup Melted Butter


Filling:

3/4 Cup Sugar

1/4 tsp. Salt

1/2 tsp. Vanilla

1 egg

1/4 cup butter

2-3 Cups Mashed Sweet Potatoes (I prefer closer to 3 cups)



Directions:

1. Pre-heat Oven to 350

2. Peel, boil, and mash the two- three cups sweet potatoes.

3. Mix with hand mixer the mashed sweet potatoes, sugar, salt, vanilla, egg, and butter.

4. Put mixture into 9x13in. pan

5. In a separate bowl, mix the ingredients for the crust.

6. Once well mixed, spread the topping over the sweet potato mixture.

7. Bake for 30min



I typically make the filling ahead of time and refrigerate it overnight. This helps the crust not to be too "melty."


Enjoy!
