One of the holiday’s most popular side dishes, the sweet potato casserole, gets upgraded in this recipe with a boost of organ meat nutrition. The savory, bold flavor of Pluck Pure seasoning pairs perfectly with the sweetness and saltiness in this recipe. Give this recipe a try for your upcoming holiday gatherings!

    For the casserole
  • 4-5 large organic sweet potatoes (about 2 lb. sweet potatoes)
  • 1 tablespoon Pure Pluck seasoning
  • 4 tablespoons grass-fed butter
  • 4 tablespoons organic maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon organic whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • For the topping
  • 3 tablespoons grass-fed butter, melted
  • 3/4 cups organic oats
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup organic pecan pieces
  • 1 cup marshmallows
  • Cinnamon for topping
  1. Step 1

    Peel and clean sweet potatoes. Chop sweet potatoes into about 1 ½ inch cubes.

  2. Step 2

    Add chopped potatoes to a pot of water and boil for about 20 minutes or until fork tender. 

  3. Step 3

    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. 

  4. Step 4

    Once done, drain potatoes and put them into a bowl of a stand mixer. Begin by turning the mixer to low speed. Add in Pure Pluck seasoning, butter, maple syrup, milk, cinnamon, and salt. Once fully mixed, turn the mixer to medium-high speed and begin to whip sweet potatoes for about 5 minutes. 

    This recipe uses cinnamon to give it its unique flavor. You can also use Pumpkin Pie spice in place of cinnamon here.
  5. Step 5

    Place sweet potato mixture into a greased casserole or baking dish. I use a 7.5” by 6” rectangular baking dish. 

  6. Step 6

    In a small bowl, combine melted butter, oats, brown sugar, and vanilla extract. Use a fork or your hands to fully coat the mixture with the butter for browning. Place mixture on top of the sweet potatoes forming a crust-like topping. Sprinkle cinnamon on top of this mixture. Then top with pecan pieces and marshmallows. 

    If you want to omit the marshmallows or don’t have them, you can. Instead, I would suggest doubling the topping mixture and using more of that in that case. This recipe makes a great gluten-free side dish for the holidays if you ensure the oats are certified gluten-free.
  7. Step 7

    Bake for 20-30 minutes or until the topping is golden brown and the marshmallows are toasted.
