Recipe: Copycat Sweets & Meats Sweet Potato Casserole (The Best Ever!)

A couple of months ago - I went to Sweets & Meats BBQ here in Cincinnati. Oh My My! They started out as a pop-up shop, then a food truck and now a brick & mortar location in Mt Washington. I got to sample the entire menu and it was delightful! I had brisket, pulled pork, greens, slaw and...

Sweet Potato Casserole! 

This stuff was BEYOND - I can't even tell you how amazing it was!!! I knew I had to come home and make it for myself. Kristen was kind enough to give me MOST of the ingredients - but no recipe and she told me there was a secret ingredient she wouldn't share. Off we go to "copycat" land!

I knew this was going to be decadent - I mean the main ingredients are sweet potatoes, butter and brown sugar. Start there and you can't go wrong. This casserole is so light and fluffy - it's not going to make you feel like you ate a lead brick!

I also tried a couple ways of cooking the potatoes - I boiled 2 and microwaved one - both turned out light and fluffy - so you could go either way. This recipe also gave me a chance to break out my KitchenAid Mixer! I bought it at a flea market but had never used it! NOW I HAVE! It was so easy and worked like a charm.

Now THIS is the Sweet Potato Casserole from Sweets & Meats...

And THIS is mine! 

IDENTICAL RIGHT???? I mean - I think I nailed this one - even if I do say so myself!!! Not to mention the taste - it was decadent! A lot of recipes call for you to add flour to the topping - but I didn't do that - theirs didn't have a crumbly topping - so I stayed true to that. This recipes used three LARGE sweet potatoes - like THE BIG ONES - and it was great. 
I really can't wait for you to try this - and you know - Easter is just around the corner. What better dish could you bring to family dinner?!!! Bring this and my Mom's Pineapple Stuffing and your family will love you forever!!!!
