3 large sweet potatoes 1 cup sugar 2 eggs 1/2 cup butter, softened 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Crunch Topping 1/3 cup melted butter 1/3 cup flour 1 cup brown sugar 1 cup chopped pecans 1 tablespoon cinnamon
Boil potatoes until tender. Remove skins when cooled. Put into a large bowl and whip them until fluffy. Add remaining ingredients. Pour into a greased casserole and top with the Crunch Topping. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes.
Crunch topping: combine all ingredients until crumbly.
This is so good. Our family will not eat sweetpotatoes any other way. so much better than the marshmellow variety.

This recipe was too good to be true! So delicious. My mother bought an off brand of a frozen sweet potato casserol dish from Aldi. I searched for a recipe trying to mimmic it and this one hit right on the mark. Even better! Just delicious. My family loved it.

Great recipe I add a tsp of cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, and a pinch of ginger, to the sweet potato mix and it comes out even better. Love this recipe, its really sweet!:)

I fixed this for my family's Christmas gathering about 8 years ago and now am told I cannot come unless I make this each year. It really is a favorite.

Cookin Lady March 24, 2008 REVIEW:
Tried this for big family dinner on Easter. It was VERY good!! We don't like nuts so I replaced the Pecans with uncooked Oats and it was PERFECT!! Very Good!!!
Guest Foodie November 25, 2007 REVIEW:
This recipe is wonderful. I think the orignal poster was thinking of the boston market frozen dinner sweet potato casserole instead of the restaurant one. The frozen diner one has no marshmallows, and does definitely have a pecan topping...this recipe is very very very close to the one in the frozen dinner, which is exactly what I was looking for, thank you.

This recipe is GREAT!!! You can also substitute ingrediants to make it more healthy and it still tastes great!
Jen November 15, 2007 REVIEW:
I've been making this recipe every Thanksgiving for years, except I have always used yams. Even in my yam / sweet potato hating family, this disappears quickly!

My girlfriend and I tried this recipe at our apartment and it was super delicious and we'll be trying other recipes from cdkitchen.
Sayu December 6, 2006 REVIEW:
Made it for Thanksgiving 06' and it was GREAT I put some marshmallows! Not like Boston Market, but still it was good. Next time I'll try it with oatmeal and cinnamon.
Bajan cook November 28, 2006 COMMENT: Made this for Thanksgiving 2006- Everyone loved it although it didn't taste a lot like Boston Market's- Will definitely make it again!
Guest Foodie November 14, 2006 COMMENT: This doesn't seem to be the right recipe, as i have worked for Boston Market and there is marshmallows in the topping and OATS not PECANS. there arent any pecans anywhere near the sweet potato pie.
Guest Foodie August 4, 2006 REVIEW:
This is a tasty recipe. However our Boston Market sweet potatoes have some marshmallow lumps and oats, so I will add that to this recipe.

I've worked at Boston Market for the past 3 years, (Ohio) and we have never used pecans in our topping. Its a combination of oatmeal, cinnamon and marshmellows.

This is an excellent copy of Boston Market's Sweet Potato Casserole. I added a layer of mini marshmallows for extra sweetness and old-fashioned taste, and used 3 CANS of yams (drained, mashed) to save time. This side dish gets raves every time I serve it and is a fabulous holiday treat (it really compliments pork and turkey). It's a great way to get children to eat vegggies and yams are packed with nutrition.

dianasul November 27, 2004 REVIEW:
I don't believe this is the actual recipe, as it does not mention the marshmallows. It's still pretty good. I altered the topping because I'm allergic to pecans (another reason I'm not sure it's correct). I used oatmeal, regular sugar, and a little more cinnamon...baked for 30 minutes, then topped with baby marshmallows. Delicious!!!

Everybody loved this on Thanksgiving! Its not "exactly" like Boston Market's but its really close. The topping comes out looking like a pecan pie and equally yummy. The potatos are really smooth and sweet. Thanks a million to whomever submitted this!
