donna’s sweet potato casserole

for our christmas feast at the big house!

Senator Russell's Sweet Potato Casserole
Serves/Makes: 4 - 6
Ready In: 30-60 minutes
3 large sweet potatoes
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 milk
1/2 cup butter
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup butter
1 cup pecans - chopped
Directions: Combine first 7 ingredients and pour into greased casserole. Mix brown sugar, flour, butter and pecans until crumbly and sprinkle on top. Bake 30 - 40 minutes at 350 degrees F. I roast the potatoes in the oven, then I peel & mash them. I've also peeled and boiled the potatoes and that works, too, just more time for the peeling part. In a pinch I've even used canned sweet potatoes and it's not bad - prefer fresh, of course, but if you need something quick, it works. I get lots of rave reviews with this recipe so hope you like it!
