Easy Sweet Potato Casserole
by Chef Deedle

This is a delicious recipe that my wife made this year for Thanksgiving. It would make a wonderful side dish for your upcoming Christmas meal as well!
3 (40 oz.) cans cut sweet potatoes in syrup, drained
1 ¼ cups granulated sugar
½ cup (1 stick) butter, softened
½ cup milk or half and half
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla
½ tsp salt
1 ¼ cups firmly packed brown sugar
1 ½ cups finely chopped pecans
½ cup flour
1/3 cup butter, melted

Beat sweet potatoes and next six (6) ingredients at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Spoon potato mixture into a lightly greased 13x9 inch baking dish. Combine 1 ¼ cups brown sugar and next three (3) ingredients. Sprinkle evenly over top of sweet potato mixture. Bake at 350? for 40 to 45 minutes.
