Sweet Potatoes With Crumb Topping
5 pounds sweet potatoes
1 cup packed brown sugar (divided)
¼ cup, plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
½ cup all-purpose flour
- Preheat oven to 375°. Scrub potatoes and pierce with fork in several places; place in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven about fifty minutes or until tender. Let stand until cool enough to handle, about twenty minutes.
- Remove and discard (or save) skins. In a large bowl, combine: potatoes; ½ cup of brown sugar; two tablespoons of butter; and salt to taste. Mash with a potato masher until slightly chunky or until desired consistency is reached. Spoon into a greased 13x9x2-inch baking pan.
- In a food processor, combine flour and ½ cup brown sugar; pulse until blended. Add ¼ cup butter, cut into small pieces and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle over potatoes.
- Bake, covered, in preheated oven for fifteen minutes. Uncover and continue baking twenty five minutes until crumb mixture is lightly browned.
