Recipe: Pastor’s Wife Casserole

I got this recipe from my wife’s grandmother’s pastor’s wife. Only made a couple of minor tweaks based on experience.

3 Cups cooked mashed sweet potato

3/4 cups of brown sugar

1/2 cup of melted butter

2 eggs well beaten

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/3 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon salt

Mix and blend the above ingredients and pour into an 8″ square pan, which should be first greased with crisco.

Topping is 1/3 cup flour, 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup of melted butter, 1 cup of chopped nuts. Mix it together and gently place layer on top, enough to hide all of the sweet potatoes.

bake for 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Will require a little time to set (10 minutes or so) after it comes out of the oven.
