As you will see if you look through my blog, I am not a vegetable person. Sorry. Just is what it is. So I have been searching for a good vegetable to blog for you for Thanksgiving. It gets hard to come up with new stuff all the time. My son in laws like sweet potatoes so I make them just to appease them.
My cousin Susan and I concocted this last Easter by putting a couple of recipes together and it turned out really good. Sorry no photo. There will be one after Thanksgiving day. You will just have to trust me.
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup flour
1 cup chopped pecans
1 tsp. orange zest
1/3 cup melted butter
2 large cans sweet potatoes, drained
1 stick butter, room temperature
1/4 cup orange juice
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup chopped pecans
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
Mash sweet potatoes and butter together. Then stir in rest of ingredients. Place in a greased 9X13 or oval baker. Bake for 30 minutes until heated through and topping is crunchy.
