Sweet Potato Casserole

After years of enjoying yam and marshmallow casseroles for Thanksgiving, I decided to mix it up and make a sweet potato casserole this year. It was AWESOME...I'm now a believer of the sweet potato casserole! I'm sorry dear yam, but I will not be turning back. Hope you enjoy it! What are some of your variations?

Sweet Potato Casserole (Serves 10)

- 3 Large Sweet Potatoes, Skin Removed
- 1 Egg
- 1/3c Flour
- 1/2-3/4c Brown Sugar

- 1/2tsp Vanilla 
- 1tsp Cinnamon
- 1/2tsp Nutmeg
- 1c Pecans, Chopped
- 4tbsp Butter
- Pinch of Salt

  1. Cut sweet potatoes into even pieces. Place pot on stove with water sitting about an inch above the potatoes on medium/medium high heat, cook until tender.
  2. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Mix together pecans, brown sugar, 1/2tsp cinnamon, and flour in a bowl.
  4.  In another bowl mash the potatoes with 2 tbsp butter, 1/2tsp cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, milk, vanilla and egg (Add in beated egg slowly).

I love how we make these casseroles full of sugar and still call them dinner haha. But they are oh-so-worth it and so yummy!

Hi Rebecca haha! Everything in moderation right? :) You can always make it healthier but putting in less sugar or no sugar at all!
