Meringue-Topped Sweet Potato Casserole

November/December 2010

Your rating: None Average: 4 (125 votes)

This lightened-up take on the classic Thanksgiving sweet potato casserole is spiked with crushed pineapple and toasted pecans. We top it with an airy, slightly sweet meringue. You can pipe the meringue to make it look fancy or simply spread it neatly with a rubber spatula.



READER'S COMMENT:
"I made this dish the day before Thanksgiving and it heated up excellent. It was huge hit and everyone raved. The meringue topping was perfectly sweet. "

Too much sugar for a diabetic. How about using Stevia?
Stevia is a naturally sweet herb native to Paraguay. It is non-caloric, and has been used as a natural sweetener and flavor enhancer for centuries. In the US it is officially considered a "dietary supplement."

Well I decided to make this dish the day before thanksgiving to ease my stress for the actual day! Only problem that I have noticed is that my edges aren't bubbling, so I decided to keep cooking it longer. Almost an hour later, still in the oven, they edges aren't bubbling they are getting burnt and looks like they are getting crispy. Could be my fault though, I didn't use fresh sweet potatoes instead I used the can stuff and I also didn't put them in a food processor. They smell good but I guess I will find out tomorrow!! =)

It is a contradiction for you to say not to use a glass pan under the broiler and yet that is how you show it in the picture? Error?

This recipe sounds awesome, I love sweet potatos. My problem is I don't do dairy, any suggestions for a replacement for the milk???? Can't wait to try it.
