Sweet Potato Casserole

I thought that I would post this recipe in case someone else wants to make if for Thanksgiving dinner this year.

Sweet Potato Casserole

3 cups cooked, mashed or whipped sweet potatoes (yams work nicely as well)
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup milk
2 eggs
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 tsp. vanilla

Blend together with an electric beater until smooth. Spoon into a 2 quart shallow dish.

1/3 cup butter or margarine
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minute

When I make it for a crowd, I usually double or even triple the amount of sweet potatoes or yams. I don't necessarily double and triple the amount of butter, nuts and sugars, but do add some extra and it still tastes delectable! Hope you enjoy! (Sorry there is no photo!)
