Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Crunchy Pecan Topping


  1. Scrub, dry and prick sweet potatoes with a fork.  Place on  baking sheet and bake for 1 hour at 425 degrees or until fork tender turning the sheet halfway through the baking process. Let cool long enough to handle easily.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease 9×13 inch baking dish.
  3. Scoop sweet potatoes out of skin with a spoon and place in large bowl. Add sugar, beaten eggs, salt, butter, evaporated milk, vanilla, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg.  Mix well with a spoon or on low with a hand held mixer. Spread the mixture in the greased baking dish.
  4. In a medium bowl combine brown sugar and flour.  Using a pastry knife cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbled.  Stir in pecans; sprinkle mixture over sweet potatoes.  Bake for 30 minutes;  turn the broiler on low for the last 1 1/2-2 minutes of baking just to lightly brown the top.


  • Broilers can be unpredictable so stay close by and keep an eye on it.
