This Ruth’s Chris sweet potato casserole is a copycat of the restaurant version. It’s a layer of creamy sweet potatoes that’s topped with the most delicious brown sugar and pecan streusel. This sweet potato casserole is perfect for your holiday meals!

Sweet potato casserole is a must-have for my family for all of the holidays. This version from Ruth’s Chris Steak House is one of the best I’ve ever had. That crunchy topping is just fabulous when paired with sweet potatoes. This one will become a holiday tradition in your house as it has in mine.

If you’re reading this, you’re probably a fan of Ruth’s Chris Steak House. Don’t get me wrong, I love the steak and all, but I really go there for the amazing side dishes. From mushrooms to creamed spinach to loaded potatoes, I love them all. My favorite of the bunch is the Ruth’s Chris sweet potato casserole, and I actually think my version is better than the restaurant version.
