How do you make Sweet Potato Casserole?
- Start by roasting your sweet potatoes. I just do this in the oven – it does take some time, but this step is easy to do ahead of time, as well.
- Scoop the cooked sweet potato from the skins and add it to a large bowl. Add the sugar, milk, eggs, vanilla and salt. Use a masher to mash the potatoes and combine the ingredients. It doesn’t need to be smooth – I like some lumps in it. Pour this into you baking dish.
- Make the topping by combining brown sugar, flour, and butter that has been cubed. Use a pastry cutter to cut the butter into the mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the pecans.
- Add this topping to the casserole and bake until it is toasted and bubbling. Let the casserole sit for a few minutes before serving.
