We love sweet potato casseroles, and pies! I find that many recipes out there are just too sweet! Its probably why I never use to care for sweet potato casseroles, until I started to make my own!
Sweet potatoes are already sweet, so I just use 1/2 cup brown sugar for the filling, if you happen to love ‘sweet’ sweet potato casserole by all means add more sugar, this amount is enough for us!:)

- 3 medium sweet potatoes
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup evaporated milk
- 4 tbsp melted unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup flour
- 1/3 cup butter
- 1 cup chopped or whole pecans
Boil potatoes unpeeled or peeled (what ever your preference) if unpeeled, peel when cool to touch. Cook till potatoes are tender, check by poking with a knife. Then mash potatoes with beater in mixer or mash with potato masher.
