Try this flavor-packed sweet potato side for your next family gathering


"This is a great side dish to serve with ham. It's quick and easy, and my family likes the way it gives extra flavor to the already nutritious sweet potatoes I like to serve."


2 eggs
3 cups cooked, mashed sweet potatoes, or one 40-ounce can sweet potatoes, rinsed, drained, and mashed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
2/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup flaked coconut
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease an 8-inch-square baking dish.
  2. Place the eggs in a large bowl; beat well. Add the sweet potatoes, granulated sugar, condensed milk, 1/3 cup of the butter, and the vanilla; mix well. Spoon the mixture into the prepared baking dish.
  3. Combine the coconut, brown sugar, flour, and remaining 1/3 cup butter in a medium bowl. Stir with a fork until well blended. Sprinkle evenly over the sweet potato mixture.
  4. Bake, uncovered, for 35 to 45 minutes, until the top is golden brown and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand 15 minutes before serving.
