Sweet Potato Casserole




Ingredients

* Cooking spray

* 3 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes (about 5 medium), peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks

* 1/3 cup honey

* 1 large egg

* 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

* 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

* 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger

* Kosher salt

* 1 tablespoon packed dark brown sugar or coconut sugar

* 1/3 cup finely chopped pecans

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Mist an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.

Bring a few inches of water to a boil in a pot with a large steamer basket in place. Put the sweet potatoes in the basket, cover and steam until tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer the potatoes to a bowl and let cool slightly. Add the honey, egg, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, the nutmeg, ginger and 1/2 teaspoon salt; whip with an electric mixer until smooth. Spread the sweet potato mixture in the prepared baking dish.

Mix the brown sugar, pecans and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a bowl; sprinkle over the potatoes. Bake until hot and beginning to brown around the edges, 40 to 45 minutes.
