– Sweet potatoes – Cream – Butter – Maple syrup – Vanilla – Salt – Egg – Candied pecans

Put the sweet potatoes into a large pot and cover them with cold water. Bring the pot to a boil over high heat and then reduce the heat, cover the pot, and let it simmer for 15 minutes.


Add the cream, butter, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt to the pot then mashed the sweet potatoes with a potato masher.


Once the sweet potatoes are smooth, let them cool for a few minutes. Then, stir in the egg.


Transfer the sweet potatoes to a buttered casserole dish then top with the candied pecans. Bake the sweet potato casserole for 35-40 minutes, or until it is hot all the way through and bubbling at the edges.


Putting a cold glass or ceramic casserole dish into a hot oven can cause it to crack. To avoid this, either put the casserole in your oven before you turn it on or let the casserole sit on your counter for at least a half hour to warm up.
