A Lazy Mom Thanksgiving week!!!!
Uh, I say- I say- I say… (Sorry, Foghorn Leghorn moment)
A LAZY MOM THANKSGIVING WEEK!
*lazy moms go wild*
That’s what I thought. You just didn’t hear me the first time. But it IS here! The week we’ve all been waiting for! (It is the week you’ve all been waiting for, isn’t it?)
All week long I’ll be posting Lazy Mom Thanksgiving Recipes to help make your Thanksgiving your laziest one yet! Squeeeeee! I’m so excited!
So let’s start this week off right with a delicious Lazy Mom Thanksgiving Recipe sent in by lazy mom Jessica. Here’s what Jessica had to say about her lazy recipe…
This dish can be made ahead of time and kept in the fridge until needed. Bake an extra 15 minutes before taking the foil off if you do make ahead. Also, you can easily double it to accommodate a larger crowd and put in a 9×13 baking dish.
Lazy Sweet Potatoes
(serves about 6 to 8 adults)
4 thin Sweet Potatoes
1 stick of butter
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Peel sweet potatoes and slice them into 1/2 inch round sections. If you find your potatoes are too large around the middle, cut the rounds in half.
2. Place the potatoes in a pot and fill with water just covering the potatoes.
3. Bring to a rolling boil and boil for approximately 10 minutes or until the potatoes are easily pierced with a fork. Do not over boil.
4. While potatoes are on the stove, in a small bowl combine 1/2 stick of butter, 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup pecans. Blend together with pastry blender or fork until mixture is completely combined and crumbles.
5. Take the leftover half stick of butter and generously butter your dish. I used a 9 inch pie plate. (8 and 9 inch square pans can be used. If accommodating a larger crowd, use a 9×13 inch dish and double the recipe.)
6. Drain your potatoes and pour into buttered dish.
7. Slice the rest of the butter over the top of your potatoes.
8. Crumble your pecan mixture over the top of the potatoes and add more pecans to the top if desired.
9. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes.
10. Remove foil and bake for another 10-15 minutes until top is golden brown.
11. Remove from oven and smell that yummy goodness!!! MMM MMM MMMM!!
