This is also a recipe I have made for years. The 4 large sweet potatoes equal to about 3 C. MASHED. Also, we prefer to have *extra* praline topping, being from New ORleans, so we double the topping. I encourage everyone to try this! Your family will thank you!
I am so sorry about my earlier post, this is not the same recipe that I was used to. My daughter found a copy of the old cookbook I had and got it for me for Christmas. This is however a very tasty dish, I just liked the one I used to make better. I will try to post it soon.
I doubled the recipe and made this for a Thanksgiving potluck at work. It was just wonderful and very easy to make. I had several requests for the recipe.
This a similiar recipe that was handed down from my husband's grandmother. The only difference is I add 1/2 cup of milk to the sweet potatoe mixture and use only 1/2 cup white sugar and 1 teaspoon sugar. It is always a request on Christmas Eve.
I've also been making this for years. I put all the topping ingredients into the food processor and whirl it around until it's fine and crumbly, then sprinkle it over the prepared sweet potatoes. It's also a great recipe for Passover if you sub matzoh meal for the flour in the topping.
I love to listen to my family protest every Thanksgiving when I suggest trying a different sweet potato recipe. Everyone loves this one!
This is my favorite way to prepare sweet potatoes. I use about half the sugar in the recipe and in the topping - it makes it too sweet for my taste. Also, I do not use the pumpkin pie spice. If you are tired of mini marshmallows and want to turn your family onto something else - try this recipe. Mine has never looked back.
So good, so rich, so yummy!
I made this recipe for a pre-Thanksgiving dinner party. I was told by people who don't even like sweet potatoes that it was their favorite dish of the night. The recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar but I did 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup of 2% milk since there was so much sugar in the praline topping. I doubled the praline topping too! It was delicious!
