Thanksgiving side dish — sweet potato praline casserole

By: 21 November 2010 3 Comments

My darlin’ husband has asked that I put some Thanksgiving side dishes on here to share with everyone.

So we will start with on of my favorites — sweet potatoes. Or, at least, a dish having something to do with sweet potatoes.

Though my husband prefers his sweet potatoes in a pie shell (editor’s note: like a true Southerner), I like mine in a casserole dish. I hope you all enjoy.

Sweet Potato Praline Casserole

4 whole medium sweet potatoes
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup pecans
1/2 cup flour
3/4 stick butter

Wash four medium sweet potatoes and bake them in a 375 degree oven until fork tender, about 30 to 35 minutes. When they have finished cooking slice them open and scrape out the flesh into a large bowl.

Add 1 cup sugar, 1 cup milk, 2 eggs, 1 teaspoon of vanilla and 1 teaspoon salt. With potato masher, mash them up just enough – you don’t want them to be perfectly smooth.

Now in a separate bowl, add 1 cup brown sugar, 1 cup pecans, 1/2 cup flour and 3/4 stick of butter. With a pastry cutter or fork mash together until thoroughly combined. Spread sweet potato mixture into a regular baking dish and sprinkle the crumb mixture all over the top.

Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
