Jenn’s Sweet Potato Casserole

Thursday, November 29th, 2007

This is my beautiful friend Jenn’s recipe for Sweet Potato Casserole, and holy crap is it good!  🙂  It can get my sweet-potato hating husband to eat them – yay I can finally make sweet potatoes for the holidays again!  Thanks Jenn!  🙂


3 cups mashed sweet potatoes (She used canned – she ROCKS!)
1/4 cup melted butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla


 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/3 cup flour
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup chopped nuts


Add butter to mashed sweet potatoes.  Add next 5 ingredients and blend well.

 Put into a 9-inch square baking dish.  In a saucepan, combine brown sugar, butter, flour & cinnamon.  Heat gently over medium heat.  Remove from stove and stir in nuts.  Spread over sweet potatoes (it’s a really stiff mixture.)  Bake at 350 for 40 minutes.
