There is much debate as to whether canned sweet potatoes make a good substitute for fresh sweet potatoes in a sweet potato casserole. My opinion is that fresh mashed sweet potatoes are better and should be used for this recipe!

CAN SWEET POTATO CASSEROLE BE MADE A DAY AHEAD OF TIME?

Yes, sweet potato casserole can be made ahead of time. Prepare the casserole without the brown sugar topping, cover, and refrigerate. Refrigerate the brown sugar topping separately. When ready to bake, remove from the refrigerator and let sit on the counter for 15 minutes before topping with the brown sugar topping and baking according to the directions below.
