The Thanksgiving Hit!

My mom wanted to try a new recipe for sweet potatoes. We love the Sweet Potato Casserole at Boston Market, and so my mom and I tried to recreate it... It was a huge success.

Here is the recipe:

6 sweet potatoes
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
3/4 stick butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

***Crunch Topping***
1/3 cup melted butter
1/3 cup flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup chopped pecans
1 tablespoon cinnamon

Boil potatoes until tender. Remove skins when cooled. Put into a large bowl and whip them until fluffy. Add remaining ingredients. Pour into a greased casserole and top with the Crunch Topping. Bake at 350°F for 45 minutes.

Trust me... you won't be disappointed.

It makes me glad when you update. You seem less far away. I think that I will make that casserole very soon. Sweet tators are my favorite and I like to trick Kevin into eating them.
