Cornflake Sweet Potato Casserole

Being from the South, I've always enjoyed sweet potatoes as standard fare. I'm always looking for new ways to prepare sweet potatoes, and this recipe is my favorite. The topping provides a crunchy delightful contrast to the consistency of the mashed sweet potatoes.

    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!

    This just like the one my mother always made at Thanksging & Christmas. We always looked to having this side dish.
