Ingredients
  • Sweet Potatoes:
  • 8 sweet potatoes
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Topping:
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
Directions
  • For the sweet potatoes: Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the potatoes on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until tender when pierced with the point of a paring knife, about 1 hour.

  • Cool the potatoes slightly. Peel the potatoes, discard the skins, and place them in a medium bowl. Mash with a potato masher or large fork until smooth. Stir in the eggs, milk, brown sugar, melted butter and vanilla until combined; season with salt and pepper.

  • Meanwhile, for the topping: Combine the pecans, brown sugar, flour and butter in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the blade attachment. Pulse until combined. Set aside.

  • Transfer the sweet potato mixture to a medium casserole dish and sprinkle with the topping. Place the casserole in the oven and bake until bubbly and browned on top, about 30 minutes. Serve immediately.
