  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.

I have always loved my mother's sweet potatoes, but they will no longer be served, because this recipe is the best I've EVER tasted! Thank you for such an easy, forgiving recipe that my whole f...
