Sweet Potato Casserole with Rum and Candied Pecans is a must have winter side dish. With fluffy sweet potatoes flavored with rum and topped with crunchy pecans, it screams cold weather comfort food!
This sweet potato casserole with rum and candied pecans goes down in the annals of my kitchen adventures as a happy accident.
Many years ago, when Candy Crush was still the craze, I excitedly tossed a few pounds of sweet potatoes in the oven with the intention of turning them into twice-baked sweet potatoes but I got distracted along the way. I logged on to Facebook while waiting for my favorite tubers to roast and by the time I remembered to check, they were too soft to hold shape for the twice baked recipe I had in mind. If you’ve ever played that silly game, you understand why I lose the sense of time. Addicting, right?
