Pecan Crusted Sweet Potato Bake

As you know I am getting very excited about Thanksgiving, because Hubs and I will have BOTH our kids home! In fact they are going to be here the entire week of Thanksgiving! 10 more days!

I have been making this dish for over 20 years, it's a staple at every holiday meal.  It is that good! Over the years, I've cut down on the sugar and butter and every bite is still just as good!

Pecan Crusted Sweet Potato Bake

It's incredibly easy to make and the brown sugar pecan crust just makes the dish even more delicious!
Hubby isn't a big fan of nuts, so I usually only put pecans on half of the dish.  He just doesn't know what he's missing. :)
