  • Yield: 18 servings (serving size: about 1/2 cup)

Ingredients

  • 14 cups (1-inch) cubed peeled sweet potato (about 5 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup chilled butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375°.

Place potato in a Dutch oven, and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 12 minutes or until tender. Drain.

Combine the half-and-half and next 4 ingredients (half-and-half through egg) in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add potato to egg mixture; beat with a mixer at medium speed until smooth. Spoon potato mixture into a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.

Combine flour and sugar in a food processor; pulse to combine. Add chilled butter; pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in pecans; sprinkle over potato mixture.
