What's for Dinner: Sweet Potato Casserole

There are so many sweet potato casserole recipes. Some have marshmallows, some do not. This recipe I found about nine years ago doesn’t use marshmallows. But it is still delicious! Serves 6-8 Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes 


4 fairly large sweet potatoes; washed, cleaned, peeled and cut into quarters
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup and 1 tablespoon butter; melted, divided
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans, divided
1/4 cup flour


In a large saucepan cook the potatoes, covered, in enough salted water to cover them for 20-25 minutes or until tender.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Transfer potatoes in a large mixing bowl and mash lightly. Stir in the sugar, 1/4th cup butter, salt, eggs, milk, 1/4 cup pecans and vanilla. Transfer to an oven safe casserole dish. In a small bowl combine the 1 tablespoon melted butter, brown sugar, flour and remaining 1/4 cup pecans, stir then sprinkle over sweet potatoes. Bake 30-35 minutes.
