Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Wash and peel sweet potatoes; cut off woody portions and ends. Cut crosswise into quarters. In a covered large saucepan, cook potatoes for 25 to 30 minutes or until tender in enough lightly salted, boiling water to cover; drain.

  • Transfer potatoes to a large bowl. Mash lightly. Stir in granulated sugar, the 1/4 cup melted butter, the milk, eggs, and vanilla. Transfer sweet potato mixture to a 2-quart casserole. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, pecans, flour, and the 1 tablespoon melted butter. Sprinkle over sweet potato mixture.

  • Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
