SWEET POTATO CRISP CASSEROLE


Do you all have a requested Thanksgiving dish? The one you bring or make for every Thanksgiving dinner. Mine has always been this fabulous Sweet Potato Crisp Casserole! Have you ever had this from Ruth Chris Steakhouse? This recipe is identical and even better heated up with leftovers. We eat it with the main meal in a little serving dish but so good as a dessert too. I love sweet potatoes with marshmallows on top but this recipe is a MUST for our Thanksgiving meal. 
Yum

Best part is, this is so easy to whip together. I even make the topping ahead of time so it's ready to go. If you buy the canned sweet potatoes or yams, it really saves on time and I actually like it better with the canned variety.


SWEET POTATO CRISP CASSEROLE

INGREDIENTS
TOPPING:
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup flour
1 cup chopped pecans or pecan pieces
1/2 cup butter, melted

SWEET POTATO MIXTURE:
3 cups mashed sweet potatoes or 1 (40 oz) can, drained & mashed
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs, well beaten
1/4 cup butter, melted

DIRECTIONS
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine melted butter, flour, pecans and brown sugar in a bowl with a fork and set aside. In large bowl, mash sweet potatoes with a mixer. Add sugar, salt, vanilla, eggs and melted butter. Beat until well mixed and pour into a buttered 2qt casserole dish. Evenly spread the topping. Bake for 30 minutes and allow to stand/cool another 30 minutes before serving.



 So good friends, so good!!

  23. This looks so yummy, I make something similiar to this minus the vanilla but plenty of marshmellows. Pecans are the best in a recipe like this.
