Crispy Sweet Potato Bake


I make these sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving, and they were a big hit. The brown sugar gives it just the right amount of sweetness.

6 servings


  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed

  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • ½ cup butter

  • ½ cup milk

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • cup butter, melted

  • 1 cup chopped pecans

  • cup all-purpose flour


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a casserole dish.

  2. Place sweet potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and mash. Measure 3 cups mashed sweet potato and transfer to a large bowl.

  3. Beat sweet potatoes, brown sugar, 1/2 cup butter, milk, eggs, and vanilla extract together with an electric hand mixer in a bowl until smooth and creamy; pour into the prepared casserole dish.

  4. Pour 1/3 cup melted butter over pecans in a bowl; stir to coat. Add flour; stir until combined. Sprinkle pecan mixture over sweet potato mixture.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until heated through and bubbling, 20 to 25 minutes.

Cook's Note:

The best and most inexpensive place to buy the pecans is Costco. They are so expensive at Jewel.
