  5. In a large bowl, mash the cooked and drained sweet potatoes with a potato masher or large fork until very smooth.

  6. Add the melted butter, salt, sugar, and nutmeg and mix well. Mix in the eggs. Set aside.

  7. Transfer the sweet potato mixture to a 2-quart baking dish and spread evenly. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the sweet potato mixture and bake, uncovered, for about 40 minutes, or until the topping is nicely browned.

  8. Let cool slightly before serving.
