Been meaning to post this since Christmas: an easy and not overly sweet sweet potato side dish.

We never did the marshmallow-topped thing with sweet potatoes when I was growing up. Instead, my mother would precook them, peel and slice them and candy them with brown sugar and butter in a cast-iron frying pan. They were wonderful... for about two forkfuls. After which, your pancreas would start to whimper.

I tried a few other things with them over the years, including a couple of "Sweet Potato Praline Casseroles", all of of which were too sweet and too complicated. So here's my own, simplified take on a sweet potato side dish.

The night before your holiday (or even a few days before), wash and dry three medium sweet potatoes. Pierce all over with a fork or paring knife, put them on a baking sheet, and bake an hour at 350° F. Cool and refrigerate until ready to assemble.

The day of, peel your 'tatoes and mash them into a small oval baking dish. Mix together 1/4 cup softened butter, 1/3 cup dark brown sugar, 1/3 cup quick oats/oatmeal, 1/3 cup chopped pecans. Spread crumble mixture over top. Place on lower rack of oven (your turkey or ham are on the upper rack, of course) for the last hour of roasting. Temperature not that important, as you're just heating through the sweet potatoes and crisping up the topping.

Delish!
