Directions

  1. Place sweet potatoes into a large pot and cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and immediately peel sweet potatoes; transfer to a large bowl and mash.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Stir white sugar, 1/2 cup melted butter, milk, eggs, and vanilla extract into mashed sweet potatoes; pour into a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  4. Mix pecans, brown sugar, 1/2 cup melted butter, and flour together in a bowl. Sprinkle pecan mixture over sweet potato mixture. Cover baking dish with aluminum foil.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through, 25 to 35 minutes. Remove aluminum foil and continue baking until pecans are lightly browned, about 5 more minutes.

I have a similar recipe titled, "Pumpkin Crunch Souffle," that differs only in a large can of pumpkin puree instead of sweet potatoes. It's outstanding! My recipe goes into the microwave uncovered for 13-15 minutes. If you use pumpkin instead of the potatoes, be sure to let it cool off a little while because it will "weep" if it's still too hot. This is great as a side dish or dessert and is just like pumpkin pie but without the crust. You don't even notice the spices are missing! Thanks for posting, jaqpink. I live in mortal fear of losing my recipe!
