Reviews for Cornflake Sweet Potato Casserole
"I cut sugar to 1/2 c in the potato mixture and it was sweet enough. Also I did not have cornflakes, but had honeybunches of oats as a substitute, really good."
"Just GREAT . . . will make again for Christmas."
"My favorite - the only time I really indulge. I make it with Splenda and Splenda Brown Sugar - still GREAT! (However I never use the amount of butter they suggest - especially for the topping, a couple of tablespoons at most - never 2/3 cup)"
"My favorite - the only time I really indulge. I make it with Splenda and Splenda Brown Sugar - still GREAT!"
"I agree that this is a fabulous recipe. Two substitutions to try are (1) Craisins instead of raisins, and (2) crumbled ginger snaps instead of corn flakes. If you have access to a Trader Joe's grocery, use their Triple Ginger Snaps for which they are famous. For an extra "kick" , add some brandy to potato mixture!"
"This just like the one my mother always made at Thanksging & Christmas. We always looked to having this side dish."
