Sweet Potato side dish winner!

Sweet Potato Bake

3 cups cold mashed sweet potatoes (without added milk and butter- I just microwaved, cut in half, and scooped out the potato and mashed)
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
3 eggs
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter or margarine


  1. In a mixing bowl, beat sweet potatoes, milk, butter, eggs, salt and vanilla until smooth. Transfer to a greased 2-qt. baking dish. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, pecans and flour; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over potato mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 325 degrees F for 45-50 minutes or until golden brown.

Yum!  Really...I know there are a lot of people out there that don't like sweet potatoes.  But this recipe is worth a taste.  The sweet potato part isn't overly sweet, and it's topped with a delicious sweet topping.  So it isn't overkill on the sweet.  This will be on my menu whenever I have sweet potatoes!

This is the one I make every year for Thanksgiving, but instead we omit the pecans (because Phil and I don't like them) and top with marshmellows!! Super Yummy too!
