These upcoming cold days make me want to bake more. Not only cakes and other baked goods but also dinner or side dishes.
I recently went through Pinterest and I found a great recipe from chefintraining.com. I modified it slightly since I try to limit my sugar and fat intake but even then I couldn’t resist.
This dish is also super affordable with the help of Aldi’s. If you haven’t tried their brand you may be shocked. I often get 2lbs of sweet potatoes for .99 cents, pecans are like $3.99 for 8 oz butter $2.29 for a lb, evaporated milk is .59 cents ( a gallon of whole milk is usually $1.99) a can , vanilla (pure) $2.79 for a small bottle, brown sugar .99 for 2 lbs, flour $1.29 a 5lb bag and eggs are usually .59-79 cents a dozen at least in the Metro Atlanta area.Very economical regardless if there is a sale or not.
I can’t even describe how delicious this is. Sweet potato casserole is like having dessert as a side of your meal( or so good and nutty you may want to just eat it as dinner). Now admittedly, I cannot eat too much of it but you will make enough to have seconds and take left overs to work.
Here is what you need:
Kitchen aide mixer or hand mixer
A few bowls
8 in round baking pan
Your oven at 350 degrees
3 cups of sweet potatoes (cubed and boiled)
1/3 cup of butter melted and cooled
1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 cup of milk or evaporated milk
1 tsp of vanilla
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup pecans
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup of melted butter
Peel, cube and boil sweet potatoes until fork tender. Drain and set them a side .
