1 c all-purpose flour

2/3 c packed brown sugar

1/4 c chopped pecans, toasted

1/4 c butter, melted

1 large egg white

1 (5-oz) can fat-free evaporated milk

Preheat oven to 350°.

Place potatoes in a Dutch oven; add water to cover. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes or until very tender. Drain well; mash in a large bowl. Stir in 1 cup streusel, granulated sugar, vanilla, egg white, and milk. Spoon into a 2-quart casserole coated with cooking spray; top with remaining streusel. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes.


Time: 90 minutes   Serves: 8


We love this casserole. I cook the potatoes at 350 for 1 hour instead of boiling them. This is a Southern Living recipe:

Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring to form a streusel. Set aside.
