Sweet Potato Casserole

I love sweet potatoes ! Period .. unfortunately they come only during the holidays .. i wish we can have more sweet potatoes even during regular days . I am more into sweet potato than regular potatoes . This particular recipe , almost tastes like a dessert than a side dish . I think it’s because of the pecan brown sugar topping , although without the topping i can eat it just fine !!

Direction : 

3 large sweet potatoes , about 4-5 cups of cubed sweet potatoes

Add water and bring to boil , until it’s all cooked , and soft enough to be mashed . Once it’s done , drain and mash . Then add :

2 large eggs

1/2 cup of sugar

4 tbsp. of softened butter , unsalted

1/2 tsp. of salt

1/2 cup of milk

1/2 tsp. of vanilla extract

Mix them all well , pour into casserole dish . Then add the topping :

1/2 cup of brown sugar

1/3 cup of flour

3 tbsp. butter , softened

1/2 cup of chopped pecans

Mix flour and brown sugar , then mix the butter , and add the pecans . Mixture should be crumbly , sprinkle on top of the casserole , bake at 350 F for 30 minutes .
