Sweet Potato Casserole

Thanksgiving or not, this dish is worthy a trip. One of my ex-colleagues makes a seriously tasty Sweet Potato Casserole. She is from Alabama and I feel it comes as a second nature to her to make these casseroles. It was when I never tasted her Casserole that everyone were extolling her dish and of course, once I ate, it became abundantly clear why they were raving so much. It is one to remember. This is my take on the dish.

4 sweet potatoes
1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
1/4 cup Butter
1/4 cup All Purpose Flour
1/4 cup Light Brown Sugar
2 Tbsps Butter
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 cup Pecans, Chopped

  • Preheat the oven to 375F
  • Boil the sweet potatoes for about 10 min just till tender
  • Drain the water and with a masher, mash the sweet potatoes to a coarse puree
  • Combine Sweet Potatoes, Butter, Cinnamon and Nutmeg
  • Pour it in a pie dish and bake it for 25 min
  • Combine All purpose flour, Light Brown Sugar, Butter, Cinnamon and Pecans
  • Remove the Sweet Potatoes mixture and spoon the mixture on top
  • Bake for about 10 min or so until the topping is brown
