Honoring Michael Jackson with his Sweet Potato Pie

News of Michael Jackson's death yesterday has the world still reeling. In times of grief and sorrow, many turn to food for comfort. What better way to honor the pop icon than by creating what he loved most: Sweet Potato Pie.

As the story goes, Jackson, the seventh of nine children, had a penchant for sweet potato pie. Difficult to check the facts of this and while there is no way to confirm that this is his recipe, its the thought that counts on a day like today.

This one is from If I were making the recipe, I'd have the Thriller CD playing in the background.

Michael Jackson's Sweet Potato Pie

3 Eggs
1/2 cup White sugar
1/4 cup Butter; melted
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/3 cup Milk (about)
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
1 teaspoon Ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon Ground nutmeg
2 1/2 cups Sweet potatoes (fresh or canned; heaping cups)
2 tablespoons Fresh lemon or orange juice
1 Pie shell (9-inch); unbaked
1/2 cup Pecan halves, optional


Beat eggs and sugar. Add melted butter, salt, milk, vanilla, and spice. Blend egg mixture with mashed sweet potatoes and lemon or orange juice.

Pour into unbaked pie shell or greased 1 1/2 quart baking dish. Garnish with pecan halves if desired.

Bake in preheated 400-degree oven 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees; bake 40 minutes longer or until golden.

Serves 8
