This sweet potato casserole post is courtesy of our contributor Michelle…Today I’ll be sharing one of my favorite Christmas dinner side dishes, Sweet Potato Coconut Crunch Casserole. This recipe is a family favorite and a big crowd-pleaser. This is an easy alternative for the traditional marshmallow yams for Christmas dinner. I make it every year for our company potluck as well as all of our holiday family celebrations. The crunchy topping pairs perfectly with the creamy soufflé for a sweet side dish or dessert.

  1. The recipe calls for sugar in the sweet potatoes but you do not have any sugar listed except for in the topping. We guessed but you might want to edit that in the list of ingredients.
