Sweet Potato Casserole

I thought I would share my favorite Thanksgiving side dish, Sweet Potato Casserole. I was able to stock up on super-cheap sweet potatoes from Kroger this week, so I will be making this for two different Thanksgiving feasts. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do.

In order to get the 3 cups of mashed sweet potatoes, I pierce the potatoes with a fork and then bake them in the oven at 375 degrees until they are fork tender. Peel off the skins and mash them with a potato masher or a fork.

2 eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups cooked mashed sweet potatoes

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup flour
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Beat eggs, granulated sugar, and 3/4 cup butter. Add milk and vanilla. Combine with the mashed sweet potatoes; spoon into a greased 2-quart casserole. Combine brown sugar, flour, 2 tablespoons softened butter, and pecans, mixing until crumbly; sprinkle over sweet potatoes. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes.
