This recipe is one that my grandmother always made; I thought she created it. I have shared this with many, giving my grandmother, Jule credit for it. Finally one day, I asked her how she came up with it, to which she replied, “I didn’t, I found it in a cookbook!” I was so amused, all this time bragging about her culinary expertise! But seriously, it is really good for those of us who enjoy sweet potatoes!
Cook 2 pounds of sweet potatoes (I used canned, as did Jule).
After cooking, drain, mix and mash. Then add the following:
- ¾ cup sugar
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 egg
Pout this mixture into a 1 ½ quart casserole dish.
- 1 cup graham crackers (broken into small pieces)
- 4 tablespoons melted butter
- ½ cup chopped walnuts
- 1 cup brown sugar
Sprinkle on sweet potato mixture.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes!
It is fabulous!
