Guys, I LOVE sweet potato casserole. It's hands down my favorite thing on the Thanksgiving table. I don't know about at your house but it's always the first thing to be gone as well! With this recipe for individual sweet potato casserole cups you'll make sure that everyone gets their share of this traditional favorite!
My sweet potato casserole has 3 parts- first, the mashed sweet potatoes with just a little bit of butter, milk, brown sugar and spices. Second is the topping. Oh the topping. How can you have a real sweet potato casserole without the fluffy goodness of Kraft JET-PUFFED Marshmallows on top?! The streusel topping really should put this side into the dessert category but we all know it's going to be on the table with the turkey.
Part 3 is the pie crust shell that takes this side dish and makes it into individual portions. Everyone gets the same amount of sweet potato casserole this year!
Making the topping is simple- just mix the ingredients together with melted butter.
Streusel topping, done!
Another secret to making these delicious sweet potato casserole cups is my amazing Demarle at Home Flexipan Muffin Tray, no need to spray or flour because nothing sticks! Grab it HERE (affiliate link)
I used a large circle cookie cutter to cut out the pie crust and then popped them in the muffin tray. You can see the pie crust folds over itself in a few places and thats totally fine!
Once you add your mashed sweet potatoes you'll top it with a spoonful of streusel and then marshmallows. yum!
This side dish is literally the best of both worlds, it satisfy's my sweet tooth and the sweet potatoes are such a great source of Vitamin A. Did you know that yams and sweet potatoes are different? Yams don't have near the amount of vitamin A in them, and here I thought it was an interchangeable name this whole time! ;)
I just love the way the marshmallows brown on top, so pretty and so good!
When I was growing up I pretty much always had Thanksgiving with my dads side of the family. We had this tradition of eating on a ping pong table (with a tablecloth covering it of course) because we wouldn't all fit around the dining room table at my grandmother's house. We didn't want to split into kids table and adult table like we did for every other Sunday dinner, because we pretty much ate at my grandmother's house every Sunday as well. Thanksgiving was different.
As you can imagine since we were eating on a ping pong table it became a tradition to then play ping pong after the big dinner. I remember year after year creating a ping pong tournament schedule for the post meal festivities. This is the first year that my grandmother won't be with us for Thanksgiving, she passed away in January and I still miss her all the time. She loved Thanksgiving and I know she would totally approve of these sweet potato casserole cups.
