Thanksgiving Splurge: Sweet Potato Casserole

I threw out all the other Sweet Potato Casserole recipes after I made this one. Avoid using those canned sweet potatoes though. I use the fresh sweet potatoes. Rub the sweet potatoes with a little oil; place on a baking sheet and bake for an hour at 400 degrees for the best result. Indulge! It's the beginning of the holiday season!

Sweet Potato Casserole

4 cups mashed sweet potatoes, baked
2 beaten eggs
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup flour
1 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, mix the sweet potatoes, sugar, eggs, butter, vanilla and milk.  Pour into a casserole dish. Mix the topping ingredients  and sprinkle over the sweet potato mixture. Bake for 35-40 minutes.
