Festive Sweet Potatoes

Back in the day before I had one super cute little child and another one on the way I used to post recipes more than once every six months.  I also used to get more sleep and have a much cleaner house, free of tripping hazards!  So in honor of Thanksgiving I am posting what is probably my favorite recipe for this holiday.  It has enough butter in it to make the Paula Deen greatest hits list.  It also comes highly recommended by the Nutrition Nazi's inner fat kid, as well.

Festive Sweet Potatoes

For the Potatoes
3 Cups Mashed Sweet Potatoes (Peel, Boil, Mash)
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1/3 Cup Milk
1/3 Cup Butter, Melted
1 tsp Vanilla
2 Eggs, Beaten

For the Topping
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Cup Flaked Coconut
1 Cup Pecans
1/3 Cup Butter, Melted

Combine all of the ingredients for the potatoes and put into a sprayed baking dish.  Then mix together all of the ingredients for the topping, and pour over sweet potatoes.  Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.   In the pictures below I doubled the recipe.

This is the sweet potato layer before the topping layer.  Please excuse the rushed photography.

With the yummy top layer after baking!

Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours.
