Sweet Potato Casserole

Ezekiel 16:19 My meat also which I gave thee, fine flour, and oil, and honey, wherewith I fed thee, thou hast even set it before them for a sweet savour: and thus it was, saith the Lord GOD.

Sweet potatoes are always a big hit around my house.  My seven-year old could eat his weight in sweet potatoes, which makes me very happy because sweet potatoes are good for the body and soul.

A lot of people eat sweet potato casserole as a side dish, however, this is sweet sweet potato casserole that I often use as a dessert.  The sugar amounts can be adjusted to suit your taste, so feel free to play with it.

Okay! Ready, set, go!

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Ingredients

1 29 oz southern yams, aka, sweet potatoes

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup real sweet cream butter

1/3 cup milk

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 eggs

Pour the sweet potatoes in a large mixing bowl. I use on with a handle it just makes it easier to hold on to when mixing.

Add the white sugar.

The add your firmly packed brown sugar. Yum, this is what makes it soooooo good!

Finish adding the eggs, milk, butter and vanilla. Using your mixer on low-speed, mix just until all ingredients are incorporated together. You want to have small to medium chunks of sweet potatoes.

Pour into a 2 or 3 quart baking dish and smooth it out.  Almost looks like baby food, but it taste much better.

Now you are ready to make the topping.  This is the best part!  Lance likes the topping so much that I  made him some cookies just like the topping so he wouldn’t just eat the top of the casserole!  LOL

Topping

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup quick oats

4 tablespoons real sweet cream butter

1/4 cup self rising flour

1/4 cup chopped pecans, optional, but I suggest using them if you like pecans and have some on hand.  It makes it taste so much better.  The casserole pictured here does not have the pecans due to the fact that I didn’t have any in my cabinet, shame on me!  (Note to self, put pecans on grocery list!)

Just dump all topping ingredients into a bowl and scrunch together, I use my clean hand, until it looks crumbly.

Evenly spread topping over sweet potato mixture. Now you are ready to bake in a 375 degree oven for about 30 to 45 minutes.  If the top starts to look like it is getting too done, place a piece of aluminum foil over the top until baking is complete.  The casserole is done with sweet potato mixture is firm, not runny.  And yes, that is a piece of bacon you see beside my bowl.  I was making a beef and bacon casserole at the same time I was making this.

It’s done and ready to eat!

Yummy goodness right here folks! I hope you enjoy it!
