    This Sweet Potato Crunch Casserole recipe is extra special because it has the creaminess of sweet potato but is crunchy thanks to a pecan nut topping.

    Pecans are my favorite nuts – as well as being delicious and buttery, they are a great source of protein and fiber. They are perfect for baking.

    In this recipe, I combine sweet potatoes with sugar, butter, milk, eggs and flavorings like vanilla and cinnamon. Then I make my signature pecan crunch topping with pecans, sugar, butter and flour. Then I layer the pecan mix on top of the sweet potato and bake it in the oven. Hey presto, an easy and delicious crunchy sweet potato casserole which makes a great addition to a Thanksgiving or Christmas feast.

    To put the final touches on the casserole and make it look impressive, I save some whole pecans for decorating.

    To make my Sweet Potato Crunch Casserole, you will need the following ingredients:
