Season’s Choice Sweet Potato Casserole with Praline Topping

There are certain things you just have to have on the Thanksgiving table: turkey, ham, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, pumpkin pie, that cranberry sauce that comes out of a can.

One menu item might be a bit more divisive. People tend to either love or hate sweet potatoes, and sweet potato casserole in particular. I grew up in a family that doesn’t like sweet potatoes. My husband’s family didn’t really serve them when he was growing up either. So neither of us saw sweet potato casserole often on the holiday table unless we happened to be dining at the home of someone who was farther out on the family tree.

As an adult, I discovered the joys of eating baked sweet potatoes. It’s a treat I often looked forward to when I’d accompany my kids on their school field trips to the local pumpkin patch, which was part of a small family farm that sold a variety of fresh locally grown produce — including sweet potatoes — in its store. I’d buy a few sweet potatoes to enjoy for my lunches that week. I typically slice baked sweet potatoes open and serve them with butter, salt, and pepper for a healthy, fiber-filled lunch or a dinner side. While some people might top them with marshmallows or brown sugar, I don’t like to go overboard with the sweet stuff.

While baked sweet potatoes are far superior to sweet potato casserole in my view, I’m not against occasionally eating sweet potato casserole at holiday gatherings. If you’re in the mood for sweet potato casserole this year, you can make it yourself, or you can buy a ready-made frozen version from Aldi.

After baking.

I baked this in my oven and it was plenty hot after an hour and 15 minutes, as advertised. It is nice to have the option to microwave it as well, since we all know that oven space is in high demand on holidays such as Thanksgiving. This smelled great while baking, filling the house with a sweet, caramelized aroma.

In terms of taste, it’s your classic sweet potato casserole. It has a base of soft, mashed sweet potato and a praline topping that is both crispy and crunchy, and a bit chewy and sticky as well. It’s a substantial amount of crunchy topping, too.

This didn’t win over any converts to sweet potato casserole in my family, but everyone agreed it’s all right and is similar to other sweet potato casseroles we’ve tried. The only thing people might disagree about is whether sweet potato casserole should be topped with mini marshmallows instead of pralines. Still, this is a perfectly respectable option to serve at a Thanksgiving gathering or other holiday feast.

The Verdict:

Season’s Choice Sweet Potato Casserole with Praline Topping is an easy way to serve a classic holiday side dish. This has a nice base of mashed sweet potato with a crispy topping of caramelized pralines. It bakes or microwaves easily from frozen (although it will take more than an hour if you bake it, so plan accordingly).

  1. I bought this sweet potato casserole at Aldi recently. I usually make sweet potato casserole from scratch but just had to try this frozen version. The pecan praline topping looked too sparse to me and I therefore added some goodies right on top before putting it in the oven. I added chopped pecans, brown sugar, and pats of butter. It was delicious. I don’t really know how good it would have been without my additions though.

  2. I just had my first taste, omg I need to get a new freezer and fill it with these. I absolutely love the taste, texture and convenience!!!

    • Wendy I have been absolutely addicted to this and had bought several boxes and 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ just ran out. They only carry at stores for certain holidays,
      sooo… I’m currently having a panic attack trying to locate these and guess I may have to resort to attempting to find similar recipes to create on my own. I’m so glad someone else also enjoys this as well.
