Ruth's Chris Sweet Potato Casserole

Who doesn't love Ruth's Chris Steakhouse??
We had dinner there a few months ago for Uncle Pat's birthday. 
Whenever we go 2 orders of au gratin potatoes will be ordered. It's NOT an option.
We decided to try something else on the menu this time. 
I'm not a HUGE sweet potato fan on Thanksgiving but my mom convinced me to share an order with her and try them out.
Ruth's Chris sweet potatoes are more like a dessert. 
The perfect amount of sweetness in a bowl:)
The recipe is from Mrs. Jami.

Ruth's Chris Sweet Potato Casserole


1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup of flour
1 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup butter (melted)

Sweet Potato Mixture

3 cups mashed sweet potatoes (you can use can to save time, drain)
1 cup of sugar
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs (well beaten)
1/2 cup of butter (melted)

Combine brown sugar, nuts and butter in a mixing bowl. Set aside
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Combine sweet potato, salt, sugar, vanilla, eggs and butter in the order listed. Mix thoroughly.
Pour mixture into buttered baking dish.
Sprinkle the surface of the sweet potato mixture evenly with the crust mixture.
Bake for 30 minutes. Allow to set for about 30 minutes before serving.

I'm definitely making this for Thanksgiving this year:)

Happy Birthday Uncle Pat!!
