Ingredients
  

  • 5 medium sweet potatoes
  • ½ cup butter (softened)

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • cup milk
  • 2 large eggs

Topping:

  • cup melted butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup pecans (chopped)

Instructions
 

  • Peel and dice sweet potatoes. Add to a large pot, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and allow to cook for 20-25 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Drain water, return them to the pot, and mash.
  • Add butter, vanilla, and like and mix well. Beat eggs and add them to the sweet potatoes (If potatoes are two hot eggs my scramble. Allow your potatoes to cool and adding the milk first should prevent this). Mix together until well combined then add the potatoes to a casserole dish.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a separate bowl. Mix together topping ingredients and sprinkle over sweet potatoes.
  • Allow to bake for 30 minutes.

Notes
