    This was given to me by a co-worker years ago that brought this for our T-day potluck. I had to hound her for the recipe, but I finally got it. It is SOOOO good, and SOOO decadent!! [​IMG] Even my husband, who doesn't like sweet potatoes, said it was good. LOL!

    3 C cooked and mashed sweet potatoes or yams
    1 cup sugar (or 1/8 C Stevia, or 1 C gran. Splenda)
    1/2 C evaporated milk (or half and half, or better yet, Eggnog!)
    1/3 C melted butter
    2 eggs, beaten until light yellow before mixing into the potatoes
    1 tsp vanilla

    Topping:
    1/2 C brown sugar
    1 C chopped pecans
    1/6 C flour
    1/2 C soft butter
    1/2 C coconut, if desired (it's good with it!!)
    mini marshmallows, if desired

    Cook the sweet potatoes in their skins until quite soft. When cooked, set aside to cool. They are very easy to peel the skins off after they have cooled down. Mash the potatoes until they are well mashed. Mix all the casserole ingredients together and place the mixture into a greased 9x13" pan.
    Mix the topping items together until well blended. Make sure the butter is soft so that you can make a spreadable mixture. Spread the topping on the top of the sweet potato mixture. If necessary, use your hands or drop the topping in spoonfuls until it completely coveres the potatoes evenly. Sprinkle coconut and/or marshmallows evenly over the top.
    Bake at 350°F for ~ 35 minutes. Cool slightly before setting out to serve.

    Oh, and don't even TRY to figure out the calorie content. Just eat it and enjoy it for what it is. [​IMG]

    I've never made it with the milk... I ran out before trying this recipe, and the eggnog was the only thing on hand. It was so good, I always use eggnog now. We freeze it at the end of the season so we have some on hand. [​IMG]

    I used heavy whipping cream since that was right in front of the fridge. [​IMG]

    I missed the part about melting the butter, but it was so warm in my kitchen I hope it won't matter.
