Sweet potato casserole is the perfect side dish, if it’s done right. I got this recipe for sweet potato casserole 17 years ago from my great aunt Katie.


Sweet Potato Casserole

Casserole ingredients
2 cups sweet potatoes
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter

Topping ingredients
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup pecans – chopped
3/4 cup corn flakes – crushed

For the casserole mix all ingredients with an electric mixer. Place the mixture in a greased casserole dish. Bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees or until firm.

For the topping melt butter and add pecans, corn flakes, and brown sugar. Mix well and pour over the top of the casserole. Bake 10 more minutes at 400 degrees.
