Sweet Potato Casserole, Countdown to Thanksgiving I

Having finalized the menu and made the grocery list, this will be a great time to prepare those casseroles or items that you have on the menu that freeze well.  Go ahead and purchase your non-perishables such as the baking items and casserole ingredients.  Cross those off your list and start baking and freezing for goodness sake!  This will leave time for the fun part which are the table setting ; embellishments; and, of course, your loved ones!   Below you will find the recipe for Sweet Potato Casserole.  Enjoy!



Ingredients:    (I always double the ingredients.)


2           Eggs

1 1/2   Teaspoon Vanilla

1/2       Cup Milk

1/2        Salt

1/3        Cup Soft Butter

1             Large Can Sweet Potatoes (29 ounces)


3/4        Cup Soft Butter

2/3        Cup Brown Sugar

1              Cup Chopped Pecans

1/2         Cup Flour

Ready for the Oven


Preheat Oven to 350 degrees.  Drain and then mash your sweet potatoes with a potato masher.  Add the rest of ingredients and stir.  Spray casserole dish with cooking spray.  Add ingredients and smooth.  Do not add topping.  Bake for 45 minutes.  In the meantime, add all of the topping ingredients in a bowl and stir lightly to create a crumbly mixture.  (Stirring too much will make a paste.)   Remove from oven and then add topping.  Bake for another 15 minutes.  Serve or cool completely, wrap in foil and freeze.  (Remember to thaw before reheating.)
