Streusel Sweet Potatoes

Leave a comment

These are so good but they are SWEET so if you don’t like your sweet potato casserole that sweet, this probably won’t be your favorite recipe.  We decided that it tastes like sweet potato pie filling without the crust ~ YUM!

I use a large can of sweet potatoes and subbed in Splenda.

Sorry about the lousy picture ~ they really are delish although the picture would not lead you to believe that!

Streusel Sweet Potatoes

Potatoes
6 medium sweet potatoes, about 3 pounds
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 large eggs, lightly beaten

Streusel
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup pecans, chopped
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons butter, softened

Cook sweet potatoes in boiling water to cover, 30-40 minutes or until tender. Let cool to touch; peel and mash potatoes.

Combine mashed sweet potatoes, sugar and next 6 ingredients in a large mixing bowl; beat at medium speed of an electric mixer until smooth. Spoon mixture into a lightly greased 2 quart casserole.

Combine brown sugar and remaining ingredients; sprinkle over sweet potato mixture.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

Serves 6-8

Happy Cooking!
