Makes 6 to 8 servings

We started with this mouthwatering sweet potato casserole and modified the toppings to satisfy lovers of crunchy pecans and cornflakes as well as marshmallows.

How to Make It

Step 1

Bake sweet potatoes at 400° for about 1 hour or until tender. Let cool to touch; peel and mash sweet potatoes.

Step 2

Beat mashed sweet potatoes, sugar, and next 5 ingredients at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Spoon potato mixture into a greased 11- x 7-inch baking dish.

Step 3

Combine cornflakes cereal and next 3 ingredients in a small bowl. Sprinkle diagonally over casserole in rows 2 inches apart.

Step 4

Bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Remove from oven; let stand 10 minutes. Sprinkle alternate rows with marshmallows; bake 10 additional minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

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!!

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

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.

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 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.
