I found this recipe around 2006 and its been a big hit for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Though my husband prefers it for dessert rather then a side dish.

2Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat 11/7 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray; set aside. ( I typically use the disposable baking dishes instead.)
3Combine mashed sweet potatoes, granulated sugar, milk, 1/3 cup butter, eggs, vanilla and salt in medium bowl; stir to mix well. Spoon into prepared dish.
4Combine brown sugar and flour in small bowl; stir to mix well. Sprinkle over sweet potato mixture. Sprinkle with nuts; drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Bake 20 minutes.
