Thanksgiving Sweet Potatoes

This is the sweet potato recipe my family always made for Thanksgiving when I was growing up. This year we had Thanksgiving dinner with some friends and no one was going to bring sweet potatoes (because they claimed no one likes them). I brought this recipe and everyone liked them.

Thanksgiving Sweet Potatoes

3 cups cooked and pureed sweet potatoes
(I cut them into pieces and boil them just like making mashed potatoes).
2 eggs well beaten
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup Butter
3/4 cup Sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp nutmeg

Whip all together and poor into lightly greased casserole dish


1 Cup brown sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup finely chopped pecans

Mix together, then crumble on top of potato mixture

bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until topping is brown.
