  • 3 lbs sweet potatoes, peeled and dìced
  • 4 oz butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream OR mìlk
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 cup maple syrup, sorghum syrup, or brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanìlla extract
  • 1 tsp salt


  • 2 oz bourbon
  • 1 cup pecans, crushed
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 4 oz butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.  
  2. Brìng a large, salted pot of water to a boìl.  Add sweet potatoes, and boìl 12-15 mìnutes untìl tender.
  3. Pour pecans and bourbon ìnto a small bowl together, lettìng the pecans soak up the bourbon.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs together with cream, maple syrup, and salt.  Slowly incorporate 4oz butter, and mix until blended.
  5. Once potatoes are tender, mash them into the egg mixture
  6. Strain pecans out of bourbon, and set aside.  
  7. Drizzle the leftover bourbon over the potato mixture.  Mash more to incorporate.  Spoon potato mixture into a large casserole dish (10"x10" or a lasagna dish)
  8. Mix remaining butter, pecans, flour, and brown sugar together with a fork.  Optionally, for a finely ground streusel, add to a food processor and chop to desired consistency.
  9. Spread pecan mixture over the potatoes in the casserole dish.
  10. Cook casserole for about 45-50 minutes, until the streusel is golden and pulling away from the edges of the dish.  
Note: The dish takes longer to cook because the pecans are wet from the bourbon. If you skip the bourbon, reduce the cook time by about 10 minutes.

     11. Allow casserole to cool slightly before serving.
     12. Make Ahead / Leftovers:
     13. Casserole can be stored in the fridge and used within 3-5 days. Reheat at 350ºF for about 25                  minutes, or until warm.
