Tom's Sweet Potato Casserole...so good you could eat it for dessert!

Sweet Potato Casserole

Sweet Potato mixture:
3 cups cooked, mashed sweet potato, skins off
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs, well beaten
1 stick butter, melted

Crust mixture:
1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup flour
1 cup chopped pecans
1/3 stick butter, melted

Instructions:
Boil or steam sweet potatoes, drain, remove skins, set aside. In a mixing bowl thoroughly combine the ingredients for the sweet potato mixture. Pour into buttered 9-inch square baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until firm.
Combine crust mixture ingredients in a bowl. Sprinkle surface of baked sweet potato mixture with crust mixture. Broil briefly just until crust is golden brown. Allow to set for at least 30 minutes before serving. (Tom said the crust mixture burned easily on the broil setting. He recommended putting it on before the sweet potatoes bake and letting it bake along with it. You do what you feel good about.) ENJOY!!!

Tom's huh? I think he's taking credit for a stolen recipe....this is the EXACT same recipe that Ruth's Chris Steakhouse posted for their Sweet Potato Casserole. Tom's a slick little chef, Jennica, but I'm onto him! However, it IS DELICIOUS!

Just as an FYI - Tom never took credit for this - he just introduced it to our family a few years ago... It is delicious!!
