Just made this for dinner and we did not like it! It was very dry and almost flavorless!!!! You had to stir it half way throught the baking and it got all messy looking. I would not repeat this!

Here's the recipe I was talking about. It is a staple at all of our holiday meals.
Sweet potato casserole with praline topping
1 cup all-purpose flour
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted
1/4 cup stick margarine, melted
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and halved (about 2 1/2 pounds)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 large egg white
1 (5-ounce) can fat-free evaporated milk
Estimated Total Time: 1 hour, 40 minutes
Preheat oven to 350°. Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring to form a streusel. Set aside. Place potatoes in a Dutch oven; add water to cover. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes or until very tender. Drain well; mash in a large bowl. Stir in 1 cup streusel, granulated sugar, vanilla, egg white, and milk. Spoon into a 2-quart casserole coated with cooking spray; top with remaining streusel. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes.
thanks! it sounds great. now i'm just debating between this and the vanilla sweet potatoes...

Thanks for posting the praline potatoes recipe. The timing of this couldn't be better. I'm trying to plot my holiday cooking strategy, but not having tons of success yet. This is a help. :)
