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 !!
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 .
