  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs large
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/4 cup salted butter softened

  • 1 cup brown sugar firm packed
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup butter melted
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans

Egg Rolls

  • 1 package egg roll wrappers
  • Oil for frying
  • 1 cup sugar + 1 tsp cinnamon for coating egg rolls

Bourbon Praline Sauce

  • 1 1/4 cups chopped roasted pecans
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup salted butter
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 2-3 Tbs Bourbon
  • 1 tsp butter-nut flavored extract

Sweet Potato Casserole

Peel potatoes and slice them into small pieces. Place them in a medium saucepan and cover them until just covered with water. Cook over medium-low heat for 20 minutes, or until cooked through and tender.

Drain potatoes and mash in a large mixing bowl. Add in sugar, eggs, evaporated milk, and vanilla, and mix well. Pour the mixture into a baking dish.

Preheat oven to 350 F.

In a separate bowl, combine the ingredients for the casserole topping and spoon the mixture over mashed sweet potatoes.

Bake for 35-40 minutes and allow to mostly cool before spooning into egg roll wrappers.

Heat the deep fryer to 350 F.

Place a spoonful of casserole onto the end of an egg roll wrapper and roll according to package instructions.

Cook egg rolls for 3 1/2 minutes in the deep fryer and transfer to a wire rack over paper towels to drain grease. While still hot, toss in the cinnamon sugar mixture for a light coating.

Praline Sauce

Lightly toast pecans in an oven heated to 350 F for 6-8 minutes.

In a medium saucepan, bring brown sugar, heavy whipping cream, salted butter, corn syrup, and cinnamon to a boil, stirring constantly. Once boiling, lower the heat and allow to simmer for about 2 minutes.

Remove from heat and add Bourbon, butter-nut flavoring, and toasted pecans.

Allow to cool slightly before serving.
