How to Make 8"X8" SWEET POTATO CASSEROLE

Step-by-Step

  1. Lightly butter an 8"x8" casserole dish; set aside.
  2. Using a hand mixer, beat the sweet potatoes until smooth or to derired consistency (I like to leave a few lumps) and remove any "strings" you see that may be in the potatoes.
  3. Add eggs; mix well.
  4. Add 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 1/4 cup melted butter, milk and vanilla; mix well.
  5. Pour potato mixture into prepared dish.
  6. Place oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  7. In a medium bowl, mix together brown sugar, flour and pecans; distribute evenly over sweet potato mixture.
  8. Spoon remaining 1/4 cup melted butter evenly over the top.
  9. Bake at 375 degrees F for 1 hour, rotating dish after first 1/2 hour.
  10. Allow to cool for at least 10-15 minutes before serving.
    Refrigerate leftovers.
