Casserole Cover Pattern and Recipe for Sweet Potato Casserole

We just added the Home Cooking Casserole Cover Pattern by Among Brenda's Quilts.  This pattern makes a great cover to carry either your 9" x 13" or 8" x 8" casserole dishes to those fun Pot Luck dinners!  I have also decided to share my favorite Sweet Potato Casserole recipe and I hope you like it!

Closed view of the Home Cooking Casserole Cover Pattern - keeps your dishes either hot or cold!
Sweet Potato Casserole
  • 4 cups of sweet potato, cubed
  • 1/2 cup sugar (white)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.  Put the sweet potatoes in a pan with water enough to cover them.  Cook over medium high heat until the potatoes are tender - pull the softened skins off, drain, and mash.

In a large bowl, mix together the sweet potatoes, sugar, eggs, salt, the 4 tablespoons of butter, milk, and vanilla until smooth, then put this mixture in a baking dish.

In a medium bowl, mix the brown sugar  and flour. Cut in the 3 tablespoons of butter until it is coarsely mixed, then stir in the pecans.  Sprinkle this mixture over the sweet potatoes.

Bake in the  preheated over for 30 minutes, or until the topping is lightly browned.
