Sweet Potato Casserole


Sweet Potato Mixture

3    cups mashed sweet potatoes            
1     cup granulated sugar       
½  tsp. salt       
1     tsp. vanilla            
2    eggs, well beaten
1    stick (½ cup) butter           

Crust Mixture

1    cup light brown sugar
1/3     cup flour
1     cup chopped nuts (pecans are preferable, but you can swap in other nuts if you wish)
1/3     stick butter, melted 
           

1. To make the crust:

Combine crust mixture ingredients in a mixing bowl and set aside.

2. To make sweet potato mixture:

Combine sweet potato mixture ingredients into a mixing bowl in the order listed above. Combine thoroughly.

3. Method:

Pour sweet potato mixture into buttered baking dish, then sprinkle the surface of it evenly with the crust mixture.  Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Allow the dish to set for at least 30 minutes before serving.


Tip

You want fries with that? When buying sweet potatoes for this sweet-potato casserole, purchase a few extra so that you can make sweet-potato fries. Baked sweet-potato wedges, sprinkled with your choice of seasonings (try sea salt, pepper, chopped garlic or rosemary), make for a healthy version of fast-food fries.
