Sweet potato casserole is a favorite Thanksgiving side dish, but you don't have to wait until then for it. It teams well with turkey, but it's also perfect with pork or chicken.

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray, for the baking dish
  • medium-sized sweet potatoes
  • 1/2  Cup  butter, melted
  • 1/2  Cup  sugar
  • 1/3  Cup  milk
  • large eggs
  • 1  Teaspoon  vanilla extract
  • 1/2  Cup  firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2  Cup  finely chopped pecans
  • 2  Tablespoons  all-purpose flour
  • 2  Tablespoons  butter, softened

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease an 11-by-7-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

Put the sweet potatoes in a pot just large enough to fit and fill with water just to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until tender, for 30-35 minutes. When cool enough to handle, peel the sweet potatoes, place in a bowl, and mash.

Combine the mashed sweet potatoes, melted butter, and next 4 ingredients. Beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Spoon into the baking dish.

In a bowl, combine the brown sugar and remaining ingredients. Sprinkle over the sweet potato mixture. Bake for 30 minutes.
