Sweet Potato Casserole, perfect for Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving! I was able to help serve Thanksgiving lunch at our church last week. One of the dishes was this wonderful sweet potato Casserole. The lady who made it, graciously gave me the recipe. Enjoy!

1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes...............1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup milk.......................................1 beaten egg

1 tsp. vanilla


1 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup flour

2 tbs. butter

1/2 cup pecan pieces

Cook cubed potatoes until tender. Combine potatoes, sugar, milk, egg, and vanilla, with wooden spoon stir to break up potatoes. Put mixture into a greased 2 quart baking dish.

Combine brown sugar and flour, cut in butter until mixture is like coarse crumbs. Stir in pecan pieces and sprinkle mixture over potatoes. Bake uncovered 350.F degrees for 25 minutes or until set. Enjoy!

Kathleen, this sounds yummy. I love sweet potatoes, just baked with a dab of butter on them.
This would be a good dish to serve at a get together..hugs, Linda
