Ruth's Chris Sweet Potato Casserole

This Ruth’s Chris sweet potato casserole is a copycat of the restaurant version. It’s a layer of creamy sweet potatoes that’s topped with the most delicious brown sugar and pecan streusel. This sweet potato casserole is perfect for your holiday meals!

I love Ruth's Chris version and this one is just as good. It is more a dessert than a side dish, but its so good. If you have it for a dessert, add vanilla ice cream and its even a bigger hit!

  1. I always make this with golden raisins added into the mix and then topped with jumbo marshmallows sliced in half on top. It's ALWAYS a hit. And yes -- is definitely more of a dessert than anything else, especially with the marshmallows! Sure to induce a sugar high! LOL

  2. These were the best sweet potatoes I have aver had! Thanks for the recipe!!

  3. I make something similar, but I use brown sugar and butter. When it bakes up its like eating sweet potato pie, without crust. Very yummy.

  4. can you freeze this before baking?
