How to Make Grandma Katherine's Sweet Potatoes

Step-by-Step

  1. Peel, cook and whip potatoes. Add all ingredients from listed ingredients above, mix and place in a 1 1/2 - 2 quart round baking dish.
  2. Candied topping - 1 stick butter melted, 1cup brown sugar, 3 tablespoons flour, 1 cup chopped pecans. Mix and spread over top of potatoes.
  3. Bake in a 350 degree oven uncovered for 30 minutes.

    Walnuts can be substituted for pecans.

    These potatoes (leaving off the candied topping) are delicious for an everyday side dish.
