Holiday Recipes #2: Sweet Potato Casserole (sorry NO marshmallows)

3 cups cooked and mashed sweet potatoes
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup evaporated milk
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup flour

Mix together sweet potatoes, white sugar, 1/2 cup butter, evaporated milk, eggs and vanilla. Spread into a greased 9x13 baking dish.

Mix together 1/3 cup melted butter, pecans, brown sugar and flour. Spoon on top of the sweet potato mixture.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.

This is another recipe that you can prepare the day ahead. I would hold off on adding the topping until you are ready to put into the oven. You also need to adjust the cooking time accordingly...since it will be cold, it will take longer. You can also take it out of the fridge a couple hours ahead of baking to get the temp down a bit. I usually do this so it doesn't shock the baking dish.
