This sweet potato pie is the perfect side dish for the holiday season. It’s even a great side for Thanksgiving!.

Can we talk about Thanksgiving sides for a hot second? Because I feel like I love them more than I should. Actually, I’m entirely sure that I love them more than I should. Can we all agree that Thanksgiving sides make that dinner so good?

I mean we have the sweet potatoes, the stuffing, the cranberry sauce, the gravy, and the dinner rolls. Sides also give everyone at the table the opportunity to bring something new and unexpected. While I love turkey as much as the next person, the sides are what, in my opinion, make the meal a great one.

So as a declared side-aficionado, I’ve been trying to come up with more side dish ideas and this Sweet Potato Pie is the perfect addition to my list because it’s so delicious! Like really, really delicious.

Actually, this sweet potato pie is probably my favorite side dish ever. It has all the things a good side dish recipe should have. Which means it’s a total crowd favorite, it’s incredibly delicious, it pairs beautifully with the main meal, and it’s really easy to make at home. I mean what else can we ask for, right?

So yes, this is good, easy, everyone is going to ask you for the recipe, and it uses seasonal ingredients (yellow sweet potatoes!).

My big secret? Add a bit of sugar. Sugar is what makes this sweet potato pie shine. The recipe is still savory, but with the sugar, the flavors get a million times more complex.
