Deena Centofanti's delicious sweet potatoes

(WJBK) -- Thanksgiving is most famously known for the turkey, but the side dishes can be just as mouthwatering as the main dish. Here's a family recipe that you can share with loved ones this holiday season.

-peel, cut and boil approx 6-8 sweet potatoes [about 3 cups]
-drain them and mash them

Add the following to your cooled potatoes:
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs [if potatoes are too hot you'll cook the egg which you don't want to do!]
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup butter
Put the potato combo in a 3 quart casserole!

1 cup brown sugar
1 cup coconut [I leave this out because some don't like coconut]
1 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup flour 1/3 cup soft butter

Blend this with a fork and put on top of potatoes and cook at 350 degrees uncovered for 30 minutes.
