Sweet Potato Gratin

Sweet Potato Casserole

Ingredients for Gratin ~

  • 1 large can sweet potatoes, drained and mashed
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ cup (1 stick) melted butter
  • 1/3 cup milk

Ingredients for Topping ~

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/3 cup butter (5 Tablespoons)

Method ~

Combine the ingredients for the Gratin and mix well. Pour this mashed happiness into a well greased 2 quart glass baking or gratin dish and set aside.

Mix the ingredients for the Topping and pour evenly over the Gratin.

Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and let the Gratin sit for 10-15 minutes to set.

Serving Suggestion ~

To serve this as an hors d’oeuvre, buy a box of frozen pre-baked phyllo cups and fill them with a small, bite-sized scoop of the gratin (you can use a melon baller for this). Remove enough baked gratin and stir it all up to incorporate the topping into the gratin and then fill the cups.  Bake an additional 5 -7 minutes and serve.
