  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a 2 quart baking dish.
  2. Place the sweet potatoes and their liquid in a medium saucepan, and bring to a boil. Cook 15 minutes, or until tender. Remove from heat, drain, and mash.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix the mashed sweet potatoes, white sugar, eggs, 1/3 cup butter, milk, and vanilla extract. Spread evenly into the prepared baking dish.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix the brown sugar, chopped pecans, flour, and 1/3 cup melted butter. Sprinkle over the sweet potato mixture.
  5. Bake 35 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.

This is a keeper! Great with turkey,chicken, or pork, or even a small dish alone. Have to be very exact with ingredient amounts or can turn out runny, but recipe delivers as advertised. Just be sure to drain the sweet potato's thoroughly after cooking. I did alter the 8 serving portion a bit for personal taste: it's very sweet, so reduced white sugar to 1/2 cup; added 3/4 tsp each of ground cinnamon and allspice; used evaporated milk instead of regular milk...makes for a creamier mixture; and be careful not to overdo the pecans (one cup is a lot!). Everyone always wants seconds!!



My children ask for this recipe every Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. I usually don't bring the canned sweet potatoes to a boil first, however; I just use them drained right out of the can, and increase the baking time of the casserole to about 50minutes to 1 hour.



This was delicious with pork chops, so it's not just for Thanksgiving...
