Thanks to Linda for submitting this famous pie recipe. :) Enjoy, Elvis fans (and all lovers of good sweet potato pie!)

2 small sweet potatoes; 3/4 pound
1 medium russet potatoes; baking type
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar; packed
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg; fresh; grated
3 large eggs; beaten
1 1/4 cup evaporated milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 single 9 pie crust; unbaked

Place all of the well-scrubbed potatoes in a 3-quart saucepan. Cover
with cold water and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to a
simmer and cook until potatoes are very soft, about 20-30 minutes.
Drain and when cool enough to handle, peel. In medium bowl, combine

potatoes, butter, brown sugar and nutmeg. Using a potato masher,
cream the potatotes until very smooth. In small bowl, beat eggs, 1
cup evaporated milk and vanilla together.
Beat this mixture into the potatoes. Mix thoroughly. Pour into
piecrust and drizzle the remaining 1/4 cup of milk on top. Bake 15
minutes in a preheated 450 degree oven then turn heat to 325~ and
continue baking for 30 minutes or more until the filling is set.
