Sweet Potato Casserole


This was a great "find" on AllRecipes - we were having steaks and needed a potato side dish, and had quite a few sweet potatoes to use (we had baked them earlier in the week, just to have on hand, but didn't have anything planned for them). I did a quick search for sweet potato casseroles and this recipe had great reviews. My son in particular is very happy I found and made this one - he absolutely LOVED it. It is VERY sweet - very dessert like, but if you like sweet potatoes, you should definitely give this one a try. It went well with steaks, salad, and some cheesy garlic bread for a very tasty and filling meal.

Sweet Potato Casserole slightly adapted from Mary48 on AllRecipes

Ingredients
2 1/2 cups cooked and mashed sweet potatoes
1/4 cup butter, melted
3 TBS milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 1/2 TBS butter
1/2 cup chopped pecans (I used walnuts)

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a small baking dish.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, mix together the mashed sweet potatoes, 1/4 cup melted butter, milk, sugar, vanilla, and egg. Spread the mixture in the prepared baking dish.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar and flour, cut in the 2 1/2 TBS butter with a fork until mixture is crumbly, then stir in the chopped pecans (or walnuts). Sprinkle the nut mixture over the top of the sweet potatoes.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes, or until golden brown.
