SWEET POTATO CASSEROLE

November 15, 2012



last night, in a tiny kitchen in the mission, alisa and I whipped up my mama's sweet potato casserole. it's hard to wrap my brain around the fact that thanksgiving is next week, and christmas only a few weeks after. I've found an apartment! still waiting on a move in date, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it's soon. I can't wait to show you pictures of my new neighborhood....it's darling. 

mama's sweet potato casserole.
  • 4 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar 
  • 1/2 cup evaporated low-fat milk
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 large eggs
  • Cooking spray
       
yummy crunchy topping. 
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup cornflakes
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 Preheat oven to 350°.
To prepare potatoes, place potatoes in a Dutch oven; cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until tender; drain. Cool 5 minutes.
Place potatoes in a large bowl; add granulated sugar, evaporated milk, melted butter, salt, and vanilla. Beat with a mixer at medium speed until smooth. Add eggs; beat well. Pour potato mixture into a 13 x 9–inch baking pan coated with cooking spray.
To prepare topping, weigh or lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, brown sugar, and salt; stir with a whisk. Stir in melted butter. Sprinkle flour mixture evenly over potato mixture; arrange pecans evenly over top. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or just until golden.
Preheat broiler (remove casserole from oven).
Broil casserole 45 seconds or until topping is bubbly. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
