hidden goodness

my kids love this - i just tell them it is mr. pumpkin and they think it is so cool.

really the name of this is sweet potato souffle, and might i say, it will turn yam doubters into believers - guaranteed.

3 cups sweet potatoes or yams - mashed
1/3 stick of butter, melted
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tbsp vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup of chopped nuts (we are pecan lovers ourselves)
1/3 cup flour
1/3 stick of butter, melted

boil cleaned sweet potatoes with skin on. cook until tender. set aside to cool and then peel and mash. mix together sweet potatoes with 1/3 stick melted butter. blend in 1 cup sugar, salt, vanilla, eggs and milk. pour into 9X13 greased glass baking dish. for topping, mix nuts in flour. add brown sugar and 1/3 cup melted butter. sprinkle on potatoes. bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. serve warm and enjoy a slice of HEAVEN~

I made this recipe of yours for Thanksgiving last year while we were in Peru and you are right, it was a huge hit. It does make believers out of those who don't like sweet potatoes!
