    YUM! Made for Thanksgiving and was a huge hit. The pecans were really tasty! Made with pecans instead of cornflakes... YUM!

    This recipe was a huge hit this Thanksgiving. I will be making this recipe again and again.

    I never would have guessed I would rate a Sweet Potato Casserole recipe as "outstanding," but this one certainly is. I don't typically like Sweet Potato Casserole, but my husband specifically asked for it one Thanksgiving, I found this recipe, and I've been making it ever since. The flavors are wonderful, and the combination of crunch and marshmallow on top means everyone is happy. Truly outstanding.

    Made this today for Thanksgiving and it was a big hit! Almost like a dessert. My mom usually doesn't like sweet potatoes, but went for seconds. Very pretty presentation. Will definitely make this again!

    Not only is this recipe easy to put together, but everyone loves it! I made it last year for our office potluck and many have asked me to make it again this year.

    This dish was so good. I baked this for several Thanksgiving potlucks and didn't have any leftover, and had requests for a copy of the recipe. This is one recipe that I will keep.

    I made this for Thanksgiving dinner. I microwaved the potatoes because there was no room in the oven - they were very easy to mash. It was a huge hit! People were fighting over the leftovers!

    This dish was definately the hit of the party! It looks beautiful and was delicious. Just sweet enough!

    This is the second Thanksgiving I have made this dish. I made it the first time because in our house we have the eternal debate on marshmellows vs. pecan/maple sweet potatoes and this seemed like a good compromise. It turned out to be the hit of the party and was requested again. This year didn't disappoint and I have to say, this is probably the BEST Thanksgiving recipe I have! You will make this once and it will go into your menu box every year after.

    WOW! This is fabulous. My family prefers marshmallow topping so I don't use the cereal/pecan topping combo, but that doesn't matter. The sweet potatoes are delicious underneath - no topping required. I also cooked the sweet potatoes the day before and stored in the fridge which saved me oven time the next day.

    This truly was outstanding! I made this casserole as a part of our large family Thanksgiving dinner, and it was met with rave reviews by everyone. A huge hit! It looks nice too. I will definitely make it again, exactly as the recipe is written.

    Oh my goodness was this great! Made it for Thanksgiving and even my husband, who never eats sweet potatoes, devoured it! Loved the combination of the two toppings. Will defintely make this recipe again!

    at my husband's request i made this for thanksgiving (my family did roasted squash instead of a casserole), and everyone loved it! i used splenda brown sugar mix instead of regular sugar and lo-fat vanilla almond milk instead of whole milk. it was perfectly sweet (which was a relief as i was nervous it would be super sweet). we threw away the extra crunchy mix which was a mistake. it would have been great for left-overs. a definite addition to our thanksgiving menu from now on.

    Yum. Made this exactly as called for. Even my picky kids loved it. They ate the marshmallow-covered parts, while the adults preferred the crunchy topping parts. A keeper!

    I was actually quite disappointed with this recipe, given the other reviews. It was way too sweet, and missed that maple-y taste. However, the topping idea is great, and certainly nice to present on the table.

  • caseycodymom Posted: 11/28/10

    I changed the recipe and used only half of the sugar and half of the amount of butter called for and it was excellent.

    I think this is the best sweet potato casserole I've ever eaten. Awesome!

    This was absolutely fantastic! We will be having this every year - skip the marshmallows and just use the cornflake mixture over the entire thing! Our family doesn't really care for sweet potatoes, but now it is a favorite!

  • Janetv Posted: 11/26/09

    I went out on a limb to try this for the first time with my husband's entire family and was shocked that every single person raved about it! They all thought it was some old family secret recipe! This will be one recipe that I will be asked to make every year. Maryland

    My entire family LOVED this recipe. I have never liked sweet potatoes much until trying this recipe. My family can't wait to have it again this Thanksgiving. Its now a Becher family MUST. The brown sugar, cornflakes, and pecans layered diagonally next to the marshmallows gives the casserole such an appealing look. YUM!

    Made this recipe for Thanxgiving, which is in 5 days. Want to freeze it, but not sure how long and what temperature to cook it when I take it out of the freezer. Can anyone help with advice? Thanx!

    I am only giving this 4 stars as I thought it was too sweet. My family, even the non-sweet potato lovers, really liked it. I will definitely make it again, but will cut the sugar in half. Based on other reviews this should do the trick.

    i made this several years ago for thanksgiving and it was delicious - very, very sweet but delicious!

    I took this to a family Thanksgiving dinner and it was THE HIGHLITE of the meal. I was so proud of it and I LOVED it. This is the recipe I'm using in the future!

    This was the best sweet potato caserole I have ever had! Bar none. Can't imagine it not being a part of my holiday meal going forward!

  • Cubfan911 Posted: 11/26/11

    This is delicious because nothing overpowers the sweet potatoes. One adjustment that I made is that I cut the sugar by 3/4 of a cup. Using only a 1/4 cup made all the difference in the world! More than that makes it really sweet. This was the perfect balance! This is going into my personal cookbook. Yum-o!

  • cmarchant Posted: 11/23/12

    This is a delicious casserole and was my favorite thing on our Thanksgiving table. One Cupid a lot of sugar. I saw the review from the woman who cut it to 1/4 cup and was happy with it. I compromised and used about 1/2 cup total - half light brown sugar and half granulated sugar. It was the right amount of sweetness without being too sugary. I liked the corn flake & pecan topping, but it doesn't reheat as well in the microwave. It becomes a little chewy instead of crisp, but it was still good. I love the pecans. My vegetarian son preferred the marshmallow topping. This recipe allowed us each to have it the way we liked it.

  • LuLoMoMommy Posted: 12/11/12

    I made this for my family's Thanksgiving get-together and it was a huge hit. Even the few people that do not like sweet potatoes liked this casserole and I went home with an empty dish. I was told I am supposed to make this every year from now on as a new tradition! As a side note, this says it serves 8-10, and because we had over twenty, I made 1 1/2 batches. This was not necessary at all. The original recipe is more than enough for a big crowd. I ended up putting the extra in a separate 8x8 dish and we had that at a different time.

    This was really good! Light and fluffy, and very pretty. I will make this again.

    I made this for a Christmas get together and everyone loved it. My family considers themselves sweet potato experts and it met everyone's approval. I baked the sweet potatoes, peeled and mashed them up the day prior to making the casserole and it saved a lot of time.

    Terrific!! I was in a hurry and used canned yams and it was faster and tasted great. Everyone wanted the recipe.

  • yopi1960 Posted: 11/27/13

    This is a very good casserole. I did cut the sugar to 1/4 cup. I used all brown sugar. I also added about a tablespoon of maple syrup which added to the sweetness. I agree with cmarchant if you reheat this it must be in the oven not microwave! Thanks for sharing!!
