Wishing you a fabulous long weekend!

I sure do enjoy ANY holiday but Thanksgiving is extra special because it involves a whole lot of food! This year we are doing a special dinner with all the extras, but the most special, and my favorite, is the Ruth's Chris copy-cat Sweet Potato Casserole I absolutely love to prepare, and eat! Here it is:

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 cups cooked sweet potatoes sliced or cubed
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 12 tablespoons butter melted, divided use
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • cooking spray

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9" square pan or 2 quart casserole dish with cooking spray.
  • Place the sweet potatoes, granulated sugar, salt, vanilla extract, eggs and 6 tablespoons of butter in a mixing bowl. 
  • Beat with a mixer until well blended and fluffy.
  • Spoon the sweet potato mixture into the prepared dish in an even layer.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the remaining 6 tablespoons of butter, brown sugar, flour and pecans.
  • Sprinkle the brown sugar mixture over the sweet potatoes.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes or until sweet potatoes are hot and topping is lightly browned. If your topping browns too quickly, you can cover your dish with foil to complete the bake time.
  • Let sit for 10 minutes, then serve.

Let me know what you think.  I am sure this is going to be the start of a new tradition for those who havent tried it.
