PRALINE SWEET POTATOES

Came across this when I was cooking at a restaurant. The delivery truck accidentally sent us pre-mashed sweet potatoes in vacuum bags. Not wanting to take them back, he told us to keep them. We didn't have sweet potatoes on the menu, but I could make whatever I wanted, so I looked in my recipe books & came up with this. It was a regular from then on. I am not a fan of sweet potatoes, except in a pie, but this is gooood.

milk
1/3 c

1/2 tsp
nutmeg
1/2 tsp

CRUNCHY PRALINE TOPPING

2 Tbsp

3/4 c
com flakes
1/4 c
chopped pecans or walnuts- i use pecans
1/4 c
firmly packed brown sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place potatoes in mixer bowl. Turn to low and mix
about 30 seconds. Add milk, sugar, eggs,2 tablespoons butter, nutmeg, and cinnamon.
Turn to high and beat about 1 minute. Fill small rameikins that have been sprayed with cooking spray about 3/4 full.
2
Bake at 400°F for 20 minutes, or until set. It will puff up & start to brown & feel firm to touch.
3
Mix all topping ingredients by hand. Spread on hot puff. May make extra & put on if wanted. I always did. Bake 10 minutes longer. Serve warm.
4
Cooking time above under prep time does not include the time it took to cook the sweet potatoes to start out with. That will vary on how you do it. I would bake them in a 400° oven until soft for maximum flavor.
