Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a casserole dish.
  2. Place sweet potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and mash. Measure 3 cups mashed sweet potato and transfer to a large bowl.
  3. Beat sweet potatoes, brown sugar, 1/2 cup butter, milk, eggs, and vanilla extract together with an electric hand mixer in a bowl until smooth and creamy; pour into the prepared casserole dish.
  4. Pour 1/3 cup melted butter over pecans in a bowl; stir to coat. Add flour; stir until combined. Sprinkle pecan mixture over sweet potato mixture.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until heated through and bubbling, 20 to 25 minutes.

  • Cook's Note:
  • The best and most inexpensive place to buy the pecans is Costco. They are so expensive at Jewel.

This is an awesome recipe. The only difference is I added 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg to the mixture. This was GREAT and tasted like something from a high end restaurant.

Creamy deliciousness with a nice pecan crunch. I used half the amount of sugar and it was perfect for us.
