  • 3 cups cornflakes
  • 2/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts
  • 1/2 cup raisins

Directions

  • 1. In large bowl, beat eggs. Add next five ingredients; mix well. Spoon into ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Combine topping ingredients; sprinkle over potatoes. Bake at 350° for 30-40 minutes. Yield: 6-8 servings.

"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."

"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)"

"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!"
