Gluten Free Thanksgiving Sweet Potatoes

Thanksgiving is upon us and I can't wait to go home for the holidays. Thanksgiving is probably my favorite holiday--time with the family, a lot of good food. Then Christmas music starts to be played at my house, the decorations come out and we spend the rest of the week getting the house "Christmas-ized."

We used to make Sweet Potatoes with the Marshmallows on top. I never liked the taste of sweet potatoes until my aunt introduced marshmallow covered sweet potatoes! For a ten year old, this was quite the sticky yummy treat.

Now however, my mom and I created an equally sweet treat. Pecan and Brown sugar topped sweet potatoes. It's a little sweeter and the pecans had a great crunch. I can eat tons of this stuff and it even acts as my dessert for the days following thanksgiving!

Depending on your serving size, this serves about 6-8.

Gluten Free Sweet Potatoes Dish


  • 3 cups mashed sweet potatoes
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup lactose free milk
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup chopped pecans


1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Combine first 6 ingredients.
3. Pour into a buttered 1 1/2 to 2-quart dish.
4. Mix remaining ingredients together and sprinkle over top.
5. Bake at 350° for 30 to 40 minutes, until hot and browned.

You can always prepare this the day before, refrigerate it and then bake it thanksgiving day. I would leave the topping off until youre about to bake it though.
