SWEET  POTATO  CASSEROLE

This recipe has a funny story behind it. My Grandpa was working for another farmer who had a small home garden he thought that his wife had planted some sweet potatoes in. She did not pay a lot of attention to the garden and before she knows it the sweet potatoes had taken over. It seems each time one of the vines touches the ground another sweet potatoes was grown. He had so many sweet potatoes he was given them away. Grandpa brought home the back of his pick up truck full of sweet potatoes. Grandma had so many sweet potatoes she was canning, freezing, and baking everything she could think of with sweet potatoes.

 Everyone was getting tired of eating baked sweet potatoes, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, boiled sweet potatoes, and fried sweet potatoes. One of her neighbors suggests that she try to add some nuts and other ingredients to make a casserole out of it. The first casserole was not very good. Finally after several attempts they perfected their sweet potatoes casserole.

Ingredients:

  • 3 lg. cooked sweet potatoes, mashed
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • 1/2 stick margarine
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

  • 1 c. brown sugar
  • 1/2 stick margarine
  • 1/2 c. pecans
  • 1/4 c. flour

 Mix first 6 ingredients.  Pour into buttered dish.  Top with next 4 ingredients.  Bake for 30 minutes at 350 or until brown.
