Sweet Potato Casserole (Video)

Creamy sweet potatoes covered in a delicious, crunchy butter-pecan-sugar topping, this delectable side dish will become a family favorite in your household for years to come! I’ve been making this recipe for 28+ years, and we love it because we prefer our sweet potato casserole to be only lightly sweetened. Many recipes I’ve come across use too much maple syrup for our liking, so when a co-worker came in to our potluck with this dish, I asked if I could write down her recipe. I believe she said it came from her grandmother and, well, who am I to argue with Grandma?

Since we have about 17+ people coming for Thanksgiving, I like to use our Stone Rectangular Baker With Tray, this way I can cover it with the tray whilst baking, and then use the warmed tray to serve my buttermilk biscuits afterwards!

Here’s some info:

Stoneware Baker With an All-in-One Lid, Cooking Tray, and Serving Tray!

The Stone Rectangular Baker With Tray offers the best of both worlds. The Stone Rectangular Baker and Stone Serving Tray combine the amazing cooking surface and heat retention of our unglazed stoneware with the beauty of our fully glazed stoneware. You can take both the baker and serving tray straight from the microwave, oven, or freezer to your table. When you’re not using it as a lid, the Stone Serving Tray can be used to bake cookies, cook veggies, serve food, or store leftovers in the fridge!

Thanksgiving Prep

Last year, I began to create videos for my Pampered Chef business. We had a virtual conference, where it was briefly mentioned about a new app that we could try out to make some cooking videos. I was really excited to give this a try, just like I had been when I first started my Pampered Chef business and, just like when I started, I had stage fright and decided not to do it for about a month.   Honestly, I was pretty sad about the fact that I wasn’t out meeting people and doing parties that I loved due to the pandemic. I think this was a natural feeling for many people last year, and being in the house for this long was really difficult for me.  Luckily, curiosity got the best of me and I decided to give it a go. If I failed, then at least I would be able to say that I tried. 

Here I am, 18 months or so later, and I’m still chugging along. I made several videos for Thanksgiving recipes last year, and one of them (Sweet Potato Casserole) had over 80 thousand views on the video app!

Which leads me to Thanksgiving prep. I have a system that I would like to share with you, along with a video I just put together and the links to all of the recipes that I made last year when I was first learning how to create recipe videos. I’ll let my video do the talking/explaining, and hopefully I can figure out how to share the documents I created to refer to them each year. I hope this helps someone out here, and if it helps you, I would love to know that! I would also love to hear from you, to see what you make for Thanksgiving, what do you do differently, and if you have any good tips for prep. Let’s make great food together!

Lazy Man Golumpki, aka Cabbage and Beef Casserole – Platter Talk

I first fell in love with golumpki (or galumpki OR golabki), when I was about eight and a half months pregnant with my daughter. Why, yes, it’s the same daughter who forced me when I was pregnant to go out in a blizzard for cheesecake

My best friend Debbie’s mom, Evelyn, made cabbage rolls for my baby shower. I was in absolute heaven! They were so delicious, and I really wanted to learn how to make them. However, when I heard how long it took to actually make them, I never even tried. I would just wait for special occasions for my friend’s mom to make them, and if I could have hidden some away to bring home, I definitely would have done that.

However, as the years went by, I thought about it and really hoped there might be an easier way to do this. I have been cooking for a long time now so I thought I would at least look up some recipes and try to figure this out.

My research is how I discovered the wonderful Food and Recipe blog Platter Talk! This scrumptious Golumpki recipe is SO much less involved by deconstructing the cabbage roll, and making it into a casserole. Platter Talk was created by Dan and Scott, but I think this particular recipe is from Scott, as it says that he is heavily influenced by his Polish heritage. This recipe was so easy to make, and I am definitely looking forward to going back to their site to find even more tasty recipes.

Let’s jump right in!

What you’ll need:

  • One head of cabbage, medium
  • 2 1/2 lbs lean ground beef 
  • 1/2 lb bacon
  • One white onion
  • 1/2 cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • 1/2-3/4 cup cooked white rice
  • 1-2 eggs 
  • One family size can and one 10 ounce can of tomato soup
  • Salt and pepper to taste

First, preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Cook the rice, and allow it to cool. I used my Rice Cooker so I didn’t have to think about it. Super easy!

I used the Rapid-Prep Mandoline to shred the cabbage. Doing it this way made prepping this recipe even easier!

Next, cook 1/2 pound of bacon. For this, I used the Air Fryer. It was done in 11 minutes. 

Once it cooled, I used my Shears to chop it.

I also used the Rapid-Prep Mandoline to dice the onion.

Combine the beef, bread crumbs, onion, bacon, rice, eggs, salt and pepper in a large bowl. You can use one egg to start, but I’ve made this a few times and I always end up using both eggs.

Now let’s put it together! I used a 9×13 Rectangular Baker, and placed a layer of the shredded cabbage to completely cover the bottom of the Baker.

Next add the meat mixture on top of the shredded cabbage.

Add another layer of cabbage to completely cover the meat.

Finally, add the one family size can of tomato soup, spreading with a scraper to cover the cabbage. You can use the smaller can halfway through the baking to add more soup if you feel you need to.

Cover with foil, and bake for 1 hour 45 minutes, up to two hours.

That’s it! I love how Platter Talk set up this recipe and help me to be able to throw this together and finally enjoy my very own golumpki, even if they aren’t rolled up! Please let me know if you make this, and what you think about this recipe.  I hope that you love this as much as my family did!
