  • Combine sweet potatoes and oil in a bowl and toss to coat. Lay on a shallow baking sheet.

  • Roast until slightly charred, about 45 minutes, turning regularly to prevent burning on the bottom.

  • While potatoes are roasting, combine 1/3 cup brown sugar and flour in a medium-sized bowl. Add 3 tablespoons butter and cut into the dry ingredients. Stir in pecans until evenly mixed. Set crumble mixture aside.

  • Combine 1/3 cup brown sugar, remaining 7 tablespoons butter, eggs, evaporated milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon, salt, cloves, and nutmeg in a large mixing bowl. Set aside until potatoes are done roasting.

  • Remove potatoes from oven and reduce heat to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Transfer sweet potatoes to the brown sugar mixture in the large mixing bowl. Toss until well combined.

  • Spoon sweet potato mixture into a 1 1/2-quart casserole dish. Top with crumble mixture, distributing evenly to form a crust.

  • Bake in the hot oven until lightly browned on top, 30 to 40 minutes. Let rest for 10 minutes before serving.

It was very good but a bit too sweet. Might try it again with less sugar. Read More

Super easy to make. Family loved it at Thanksgiving. Wish it had more precise measurements other than 3 medium sweet potatoes. Used one sweet potato and it was enough for 1 serving for 9 people Read More

I made this for Thanksgiving because I thought roasting the sweet potatoes might give them a more complex flavor. While that might have been true any benefits were overwhelmed by the super sweetness of the dish. One person even said it tasted like a dessert. Disappointing. Read More
