Today's recipe: Sweet Potato Casserole
Submitted by: Mary Wilde

Gone are the days where your sweet potatoes come out of a can and are covered with marshmallows. This delicious casserole will have you asking for seconds and thirds. I usually eat it last because it tastes just like dessert.

Prep Time:
40 min
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Ready In: 1 hour 20 minutes
Serves: 4-6

Here's What You'll Need:
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 butter, melted and cooled
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
4 cups cubed sweet potatoes
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp cold butter
1/2 cup chopped pecans*

I prefer the Emerald brand Pecan Pie Pecans. It really isn't the same without it. I have tried plain pecans, and I have even tried to glaze my own pecans, but nothing can make this casserole sing like those Emerald ones!


1. Cook sweet potatoes until soft
2. Drain and set aside
3. In a large bowl combine eggs, sugar, melted butter, vanilla and salt.
4. Stir in cooked sweet potatoes
5. Spread sweet potato mixture evenly into an ungreased 2 quart square baking dish
6. Topping: in a small bowl, combine brown sugar and flour.
7. Using a pastry blender, cut in cold butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
8. Stir in pecans.
9. Sprinkle over potato mixture.
10. Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until heated through.

The Finished Product!
