Ingredients

  • 6 or 7 cooked mashed sweet potatoes baked or boiled selection tip: choose small or medium sweet potatoes with smooth skin and no/few bruises
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 3 or 4 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2- 3/4 teaspoon vanilla depending on taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon optional
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice fresh is important or you may get a flavor that overwhelms the sweet potatoes- so aim for fresh!
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • 1/2 cup pecan halves for topping
  • salt to taste

Instructions

Directions:

  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl except the egg and the pecan halves (topping).
  • Taste the mixture and adjust your salt and sugar if needed. Stir in egg.
  • Put in casserole dish and top with pecan halves.
  • I like to make some sort of design with the topping, but it is not necessary.
  • Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees or until set.

Make ahead:

  • This sweet potato casserole can be made one day ahead.
  • Just refrigerate and top with plastic wrap.
  • I add my pecan halves before I put it in the oven and add an additional 5-7 minutes to the baking time.
