Recipe

Filling

  • 3 pounds sweet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/ 4 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/ 2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/ 2 cup dark brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1/ 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/ 2 teaspoon coarse Kosher salt

Filling

Method

  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 425 and line a baking sheet with foil. Wash the potatoes and place on the baking sheet; drizzle the potatoes with the olive oil and cover tightly with another piece of foil. Roast for one and a half hours. Set aside to cool until cool enough to handle, remove the skins, and scoop the potato flesh into a food processor. Puree until smooth.

  • Step 2

    Mix in the softened butter, beaten eggs, cream, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt until incorporated. Spread into a 9x13 pan or large gratin baking dish.

Topping

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/ 2 cup dark brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1/ 4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/ 4 teaspoon coarse Kosher salt
  • 1/ 4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/ 2 cup pecans, roughly chopped

Topping and Bake

Method

  • Step 1

    In a bowl, mix together the flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar and salt. Add the butter, and use a fork to evenly distribute, then use your hands to rub the butter in until moist and crumbly. Stir in the pecans.

  • Step 2

    Preheat the oven to 350. Sprinkle the topping over the filling and bake for 45 minutes; if necessary, lay a piece of foil over the top if the topping is getting too brown.

  • Step 3

    Pro Tip: Prepare the filling and topping the day before, keeping them separate in the refrigerator until ready to bake.
