Just thinking forward to Thanksgiving and our farm menu. This sweet potato casserole is a MUST at our table and in my humble opinion, I think it should be presented at yours too! I am going to try it in this traditional way and using one of the Cinderella Pumpkins we have here at the farm.
5 medium size sweet potatoes. boil and mash - should be around 3 cups. Mix with the mashed sweet potatoes:
2 eggs beaten
1/2 c - 3/4 c sugar
1/2 stick of melted butter
1/2 t. nutmeg and cinnamon
1 c milk (we use whole/organic milk)
mix this together - well.
place in a buttered 9x12 inch pan and bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.
3/4 crushed cornflakes
1/2 c. chopped pecans
1/2 c brown sugar and 1/2 stick of melted butter Mix this and spread over the top of the baked casserole. then bake for 8 - 10 minutes
Let me know how you like it!
