Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Pecan Streusel


This is one of my favorites and I used to make it often.  It has been a while, since I made this particular style sweet potato, all dressed up with it's Nut Topping.


I made changes from my original recipe.  I did not add any butter or margarine to the sweet potatoes, not did I add sugar.  The sweet potatoes stand alone.  I seasoned it with pumpkin pie spice and vanilla and cinnamon. Yummy,  This is a childhood memory although, it was nude, no topping.




Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Pecan Streusel
Ingredients:


3 eggs
5 large sweet potatoes
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


14 cup gluten-free flour
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 - 2 teaspoons oil  (walnut, hazelnut, canola)
1/2 cup chopped pecans


Method:


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease casserole. 


Mash sweet potatoes until smooth in a large bowl.  Add vanilla and spices and mix them in thoroughly. Add eggs and again mix well.  Place in a 8 inch casserole.


Mix topping ingredients together.  Drop spoonfuls on top of sweet potatoes.


Bake for 20 minutes and cool for 5 minutes.  Cut into wedges or if it is too soft, scoop with a spoon.
