Sweet Potato Praline Casserole
Makes 6 to 8 servings/Recipe from Chef Alex Patout's "Cajun Home Cooking." You can make the sweet potato puree ahead of time, then warm it and add the topping.

5 large sweet potatoes
1/2 cup (1 stick) softened butter
1 /2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 cup light brown sugar
1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup chopped pecans

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.  Scrub sweet potatoes and place in the oven. Bake until tender, about 40 minutes, and remove. When they are cool enough to handle, halve them and scoop out the insides into a large mixing bowl. Mash well. You should have about 3 cups.
2. Mix in softened butter, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, eggs, vanilla, and milk. Pour the mixture into a baking pan or casserole dish.
3. Bring the cream to a simmer in a small saucepan. Add the brown sugar and stir until it dissolves. Cook the mixture over medium heat until it reaches the soft-ball stage (235°F) on a candy thermometer. Remove from heat and beat in the melted butter and pecans. Pour mixture over the sweet potatoes. Bake until very hot and beginning to brown.

The recipe of sweet potato/pumpkin casserole I want to make is similar with this, it has all spices powder and different topping ( wafer crumb and pecans )

This is the recipe I use every year. You can use canned yams instead of fresh.


Directions
1.Bake yams at 350 degrees till done, 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Mash yams equal to 4 cups. Whisk in eggs and butter. Heat milk and stir in with 1/2 cup sugar. Spread in 11 by 7 inch pan. Mix remaining sugar, butter, flour till crumbly. Stir in remaining ingredients. Sprinkle over top of yams. Bake till crusty, 30 minutes.


Ingredients

3 1/2 pounds yams
4-6 tablespoons melted butter
2 beaten eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 cup dark brown sugar
4 tablespoons soft butter
4 tablespoons flour
1 cup chopped pecans
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Imelda and Debbie,

Both of your sweet potato dishes sound good, too. I love Thanksgiving!
