Sweet Potato Pudding

2 eggs

1 c sugar

pinch of salt

2 c peeled raw sweet potato, grated

1 1/2 c evaporated milk

3/4 stick butter

2 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp cinnamon

Beat eggs. Add sugar and beat until light.  Add milk, butter, vanilla, cinnamon and salt and beat together.  Fold in potatoes by hand.  Pour into greased dish and bake at 350 for about 45 minutes.  When it's done, the top will be firm.  This recipe fits an 8″ x 8″ pan.

We always had this at Thanksgiving when I was growing up, and now I take it to Thanksgiving at the in-laws too.  I usually double the recipe and cook it in a 9″ x 13″ pan, and it takes about twice as long to cook.  I also add extra vanilla and cinnamon - You can never have too much!   It looks really gross before it's cooked because the butter is just floating around in weird little chunks, but it is SOOOOO good once it's cooked!  It's good as a side dish, a dessert, or as breakfast the next morning.

This sounds like a natural to use brown sugar.  Have you tried it that way?

I have thought about trying brown sugar, but I haven't ever actually done it.  Maybe I'll try that this week!  I have a ham in the freezer I'm planning on cooking, and this dish would be yummy with it!

Oh, that DOES sound perfect!  Let us know how it goes.  (I'm just a brown sugar nut, and usually use it when given a choice.)

Ok, I decided to go ahead and make this today and try out the brown sugar idea.  Here's what it looks like before it's cooked.  So if you decide to make this and it turns out looking all gross like this, you're on the right track!

Sweet potatoes!  This recipe jogged my memory -- I have a box I stored in the back of the pantry from last fall and had forgotten all about it.  They are still good and the will make a great pudding.  Now I just need the ham to go with it.  I'll have to improvise with pork loin instead.

This picture is much more appetizing.  Notice the yummy bubbly buttery goodness around the edges.

I'm gping to try this one,  I love sweet potatoes, but have never used raw potatoes in a casserole before.

Don't cry because it's over—smile because it happened!
