Like many of you, I have recipes that have been passed on to me from friends and family members. One of my favorite recipes is my GiGi's Sweet Potato Casserole! I can remember always having it at her house for Thanksgiving, and it is how I learned to like sweet potatoes. This recipe is easy, classic, and completely melt-in-your-mouth fantastic. (Notice I did not say it was healthy. There's a reason I only make this once a year!)
GiGi's Sweet Potato Casserole
1 large can of sweet potatoes, drained
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 stick melted butter
2 beaten eggs
1 Tbsp. vanilla
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 stick softened (not melted) butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a ceramic pie dish or another serving dish.
Empty drained sweet potatoes into a large bowl. Mash with a fork, then add sugar, brown sugar, salt, melted butter, eggs, vanilla, and milk. Using a wooden spoon, stir well to combine. Pour mixture into greased pie dish.
I often make a little one to stash in the freezer for Christmas! (My husband doesn't care for sweet potatoes, so I get to enjoy this myself!)
