It wasn’t until a couple years ago that I discovered my love of sweet potatoes. I’m not sure why I hadn’t eaten them much before that. It isn’t like I had anything against them or disliked them, but they just weren’t something I ate much of. However, once I did discover them, I found that one of the most amazing dishes to make with sweet potatoes is this recipe for the sweetest sweet potatoes. Think sweet potatoes with a streusel topping. This could nearly classify as a dessert instead of a side dish (but don’t worry, it doesn’t classify as a dessert, so feel free to eat that piece of pie!).
- 5 cups sweet potatoes, cooked (I used 4 large sweet potatoes and baked them)
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1/3 cup evaporated milk
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/3 cup cold butter
- 1 cup pecans, chopped
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Grease 13x9 pan.
- In a stand mixer (or using a mixer in a large mixing bowl), beat the sweet potatoes until they are smooth (it's okay if they have a few lumps).
- Add butter, evaporated milk, sugar, vanilla and eggs, and mix until well blended.
- Spread in greased pan.
- In a medium bowl, stir together flour and brown sugar. Cut cold butter into the mixture, until mixture is crumbly. Stir in chopped nuts.
- Sprinkle topping over sweet potatoes.
- Bake approximately 35 minutes until golden brown.
