Fluffy, sweet, earthy and crunchy – all in the same bite! This whipped and baked mixture is everything that a casserole should be. The Fisher® Pecans form a perfect crust atop creamy sweet potatoes.
3 medium sweet potatoes (about 2 pounds), scrubbed well
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature, divided
1/2 cup finely chopped onions
1/4 cup brown sugar, divided
1 large egg
1/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
3/8 teaspoon dried rosemary, divided
1/2 cup chopped Fisher® Chef’s Naturals Pecans, divided
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
Pierce sweet potatoes all over with a fork. Microwave on HIGH for 15 minutes or until cooked through. Let rest 5 minutes or until cool enough to handle.
Meanwhile, heat 1 Tbsp. butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions, and cook until soft and fragrant, about 3 minutes.
Peel cooled potatoes and place flesh in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Add cooked onions, 2 Tbsp. butter, 2 Tbsp. sugar, egg, milk, salt and pepper. Beat on medium until combined. Increase speed to high and beat 2 minutes or until fluffy. Stir in rosemary and ¼ cup pecans.
Transfer mixture to a buttered 8-cup baking dish.
Mix remaining 2 Tbsp, butter, flour, remaining ¼ cup pecans, 1/8 tsp. rosemary and 2 Tbsp. brown sugar until a lumpy, course mixture forms. Sprinkle streusel mixture over top of sweet potatoes. Bake until golden and heated through, about 20 minutes. Serve immediately.
