  1. In a large stockpot, cover sweet potatoes with 1 inch of water; boil for 20 minutes, or until fork tender. Drain, allow to cool and remove skins.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease or butter one 2 quart casserole dish.
  3. Place potatoes in a mixing bowl and with an electric mixer, beat on low speed until potatoes begin to break up. Increase speed to medium high and blend until smooth.
  4. Reduce speed to low and add sugar, milk, butter, vanilla, eggs and salt. Mix well.
  5. Allow any potato 'fibers' to remain on the beater and remove. Pour sweet potato mixture into the casserole dish.
  6. Prepare the topping in a small bowl by whisking together the brown sugar, flour, butter and pecans. Sprinkle mixture over potato mixture and bake for 40 minutes.

I have used this recipe every Thanksgiving/Christmas for the last 5yrs. and it's ALWAYS a hit!!! I use one large can of sweet potatoes in leu of cooking them myself and use hazelnut coffe cream...

This is soooo good! It tastes just like the Honeybaked Ham store's version of this, and it is a third of the cost!

Great recipe. I used evaporated milk instead because that was all I had -- made it nice a creamy!

VERY good - LOVED the topping and I was asked by 2 people at Thanksgiving for the recipe. I made this the night before, baked it the next day, and it turned out great!
