Ingredients

5 medium sweet potatoes

4 bananas 

1/4 cup honey 

1/2 pound (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature 

Kosher salt 

1 1/2 cups chopped pecans 

3/4 cup brown sugar 

1/2 cup all-purpose flour 

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Prick the sweet potatoes all over with a fork and roast on a sheet pan for 15 minutes.
  3. Place the bananas in the same pan and roast 15 minutes more. Turn the oven down to 350 degrees F.
  4. When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, scoop out the flesh into a large mixing bowl. Peel the bananas and add them to the bowl along with the honey and 1 stick of butter.
  5. Season with salt and beat vigorously with a wooden spoon until everything is well combined.
  6. Blend the other stick of butter with the chopped pecans, sugar, flour and a bit of salt in a food processor until it has a coarse crumb texture.
  7. Place the potato mixture in a 9-by-13-inch casserole dish and level out.
  8. Sprinkle the crumbs over the top and bake until the top browns and crisps, 7 to 8 minutes.
  9. Serve hot.
