Sweet Potato Casserole

Sweet Potato Casserole

Sweet potato casserole is especially good with thanksgiving dinner or a steak dinner.
  
Sweet Potato Mixture
1 lbs sweet potatoes peeled (about 4 medium-sized)
cup sugar
tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg, beaten
cup butter


Topping
cup brown sugar
cup flour
cup chopped pecans
cup melted butter

Cut the sweet potatoes in half and bring a pot of salted water to a boil.  Add the potatoes to the water and boil them for 25 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are cooked through and can be easily pierced with a fork. Drain. Preheat the oven to 350. Use a mixer to mash the sweet potatoes then add each of the sweet potato mixture ingredients.  Mix them thoroughly and pour everything into a baking dish.  We use a 12" x 7". In a separate bowl, combine topping mixture ingredients, mix them well, and sprinkle it all on top of the sweet potatoes. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes at 350.
