Sweet Potato Casserole with Praline Topping

Dear Auntie,

I read about your Thanksgiving dinner with friends on your blog and am sending the recipe below.  If it is not similar to what your friends made, tweak away.  My friend Carole now brings this for every Thanksgiving and Christmas, and it replaced my old favorite, candied yams. 

The casserole is absolutely yummy and I have been known to make more of the praline topping than the recipe calls for  ;-)


Sweet Potato Casserole with Praline Topping  

4 cups hot mashed sweet potatoes
1/3 cup butter or margarine and 2 tablespoons melted 

2 tablespoons granulated sugar 

2 eggs - beaten 

½ cup milk 

1/3 cup chopped pecans 

1/3 cup packed brown sugar                                   
2 tablespoons flour

Mix the sweet potatoes, 1/3 cup of butter and the granulated sugar. Beat in the eggs and milk. Pour into a greased 2 - quart casserole.

Combine the pecans, brown sugar and flour.  Stir in 2 tablespoons of melted butter.  Sprinkle the mixture over the sweet potatoes.

Bake at 325º for 1 hour.

Dear Linda,

Thanks for the recipe!!!
