  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour

  5. Once cooled, remove skins from potatoes
  6. Mash potatoes with a fork in a large bowl
  7. Mix in 1/2 cup butter
  8. Add sugar and salt, mix
  9. Whisk eggs in separate bowl and them mix into potatoes
  10. Add in milk a little bit at a time (you may not need all of it), you want a cake batter texture
  11. Spread potatoes evenly in a 9x13 glass pan
  12. Melt 1/2 cup butter
  13. Mix butter with brown sugar, nuts, and flour
  14. Sprinkle sugar mixture over the top of the potatoes
