Can you guess what this is?
Sweet Potato Casserole
3 c. cooked sweet potatoes, mashed
1 c. sugar
3 eggs, well beaten
1/2 c. cream (I use evaporated milk)
1 stick butter, melted
1Tbsp. vanilla (organic or pure)
Nutmeg honestly is an option. I do not use it but if you choose to use it 1/2 tsp.
Mix well; beat with mixer until smooth.
1/2 c. light brown sugar
1/2 c. self-rising flour
1/2 stick butter
1 c. pecans
Mix well or until mixture is grainy. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes.
This recipe was a holiday, southern tradition when I was growing up. Why wait until Thanksgiving to have this for dinner? We have sweet potatoes in the Midwest so it doesn't have to be southern.
I serve this with lemon pepper green beans and tuna patties.
