Steamed sweet potatoes are whipped together with honey, egg, cinnamon, and nutmeg in this healthy casserole. This sweet potato casserole is unbelievably light and addicting; you won’t be able to resist a second helping!


For the sweet potatoes:

3½ pounds sweet potatoes (about 5 medium), peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks

•⅓ cup honey

1 large egg

1 ½ tsp. ground cinnamon

¼ tsp. ground nutmeg

•⅛ tsp. ground ginger

½ tsp. Kosher salt

For the topping:

•⅓ cup chopped pecans

1 tbsp. packed dark brown sugar

½ tsp. cinnamon


1. Bring a few inches of water to a boil in a pot fitted with a large steamer basket. Put the sweet potatoes in the basket, cover, and steam until tender, about 20 minutes. Transfer the potatoes to a large mixer bowl and let cool slightly.

2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.

3. To the bowl with the potatoes, add the honey, egg, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and salt; beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Spread the sweet potato mixture into the prepared baking dish.

4. Mix the brown sugar, pecans, and ½ teaspoon cinnamon in a bowl; sprinkle over potatoes. Bake until hot and beginning to brown around the edges, 40-45 minutes. Check casserole after 30 minutes and cover with foil to prevent over-browning.
