Sweet Potato Casserole

When everyone insists that you make this for every holiday, don't blame me! LOL


3 Cups Sweet Potatoes (if using canned, drain most of the juice, but not all)

1 Cup Sugar

1 Stick Margarine

1 Tsp. Vanilla

2 Eggs

1/2 Cup Canned Milk

Topping:
1 Cup Chopped Pecans

1 Cup Light Brown Sugar

1/3 Cup Flour

1/3 Cup melted Butter (to make everything moist)


Mix all ingredients and place in a greased baking dish (I use one of those blue rectangular dishes). Sprinkle with topping.

Bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes

In a pinch, you can substitute the vanilla and canned milk with 1/2 cup of Very Vanilla Soy Milk. I've done that twice, and couldn't taste a difference.

I like to bake mine a little less than this. At 35 minutes, the topping becomes crunchier, like a candy topping. It's good, but I just prefer it more crumbly.

Also, I usually use 1 1/2 cups of chopped pecans, but that's just because I like pecans. You can add more butter to the topping to make it easier to spread, too.

Substitute the vanilla flavoring with vanilla butter and nut flavoring and it will have a much better taste
