senator russel sweet potato casserole

i have no idea who senator russel was, or why this recipe is named after him, senator russel, if you are out there, your recipe is delish!
my old neighbor in delray beach, diane, gave me this recipe, i miss her constantly and think of her every holiday when i whip these potatoes up :-)
it is a sweet casserole, yum yum!

senator russel sweet potato casserole

3 ½ cups mashed sweet potatoes
1/2 cup sugar (you can use less)
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup butter softened

combine all ing. in a large casserole, (i spray it with pam).

topping- 1/2 cup br. sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/4 cup melted butter
1 cup chopped pecans

combine topping ing.- crumble over potato mixture. cover- bake at 275 degree oven 40 minutes. uncover- bake 10 minutes more

when i make this dish for a large crowd, i use 3 large cans of sweet potatoes, and double the rest of the potato filling ing., and i triple the topping ing., sprinkle about half of the topping mixture over the potatoes. bake 45 minutes at 325, uncover for 15 minutes more.
then i make a one crust apple pie, and crumble the extra topping over the apple filling. simply deliscious!!!
having leftover sweet potato casserole is wonderful, i eat it for breakfast :-)
