Banana Whipped Sweet Potato Casserole




Filling:
2 small bananas (or 1 large), smashed (secret ingredient!)
4 1/2 cups cooked and mashed sweet potatoes
1/4 cup light butter, melted
1/3 cup 1% milk
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs, beaten


Topping:
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup light butter
1 cup chopped pecans


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.


In a large bowl, mix together smashed bananas, mashed sweet potatoes, 1/2 cup butter, milk, sugar, vanilla extract, and eggs. Spread sweet potato mixture into the prepared baking dish.


In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar and flour. Cut in 1/3 cup butter until mixture is crumbly, then stir in pecans. Sprinkle pecan mixture over the sweet potatoes.


Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.

That sounds great! I'm always trying to find ways to enjoy sweet potatoes. Maybe I could make this vegan...or take the idea and mix it up a little.
