Sweet Potato Casserole


1/2 Cup Brown Sugar (if you like it sweeter, add another 1/2 cup)
1/2 Cup Flour
1 Cup chopped pecans
1/3 Stick Butter, melted            

Sweet Potato Mixture:

3 Cups Mashed Sweet Potatoes (about 4 sweet potatoes)
1/2 cup sugar (add an extra 1/2 cup if like it sweeter)

1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs, beaten

1/2 cup half and half (or evaporated milk)
4 tablespoons melted butter

For the topping, combine the brown sugar, flour, nuts and melted butter in a mixing bowl and mix until combined and crumbly.  

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Combine the sweet potatoes, sugar, salt, vanilla, eggs, milk and butter in a mixing bowl and mix well (You could also do this in the food processor instead of mashing your sweet potatoes).  Pour the sweet potato mixture into a buttered baking dish. Sprinkle the top with the nut mixture.  Bake for 30 minutes.  It's best if you let it sit for 30 minutes before serving.  Serves 8.
