Drum roll, please. This is my most requested recipe. I keep it on my desktop to email it to anyone who requests it. This is a must for Turkey Day, but goes well with ham or roast chicken - in fact almost anything. If you have a food processor, it's fast too.
Puree the sweet potatoes (I use canned), eggs, sugar, butter, milk, bourbon and salt in the processor,then pour into an oven proof dish. Smooth the top.
Place the last ingredients in the processor (clean out all the left over potato stuff) and pulse until you have a crumbly mixture. Sprinkle the crumbs evenly on top of the sweet potatoes. Hopefully you have saved 13 or so pecan halves to decorate the top. I put one in the middle and place the rest like the numbers on a clock.
Cook in a 350˚ oven for 1 hour.
I've served up to 12 people with this recipe, but that's at Thanksgiving when there are tons of other side
dishes. Eight servings might be more like it for a regular dinner.
Once you eat this, sweet potatoes with marshmallows will be banished to the children's table forever.
