Ingredients

 sweet potatoes (about 2 pounds), peeled and cut up
 

Nonstick cooking spray
 

 1/4 cup packed brown sugar or brown sugar substitute equivalent to 1/4 cup brown sugar
 

 eggs, slightly beaten
 

 3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
 

 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
 

 1/2 cup fat-free milk
 

 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
 

 1/4 cup packed brown sugar or brown sugar substitute equivalent to 1/4 cup brown sugar
 

 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
 

 3 tablespoons butter, melted
 

Directions

  1.  In a covered large saucepan, cook sweet potatoes in enough lightly salted boiling water to cover for 25 to 30 minutes or until very tender. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat a 1-1/2- to 2-quart oval baking dish or a 2-quart square baking dish with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
  2.  Drain sweet potatoes; return to saucepan. Using an electric mixer or potato masher, mash sweet potatoes until smooth. Stir in 1/4 cup brown sugar or brown sugar substitute, the eggs, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Add milk; stir to combine. Pour into the prepared baking dish.
  3.  In a small bowl, combine pecans, 1/4 cup brown sugar or brown sugar substitute, the flour, and melted butter; sprinkle over sweet potatoes.
  4.  Bake, uncovered, about 30 minutes or until sweet potatoes are heated through and topping is golden brown. Serve warm. Makes 10 servings.
