Sweet Potato Casserole

Monique Arnow


This is another family holiday recipe that is a must at our holiday dinners. It was given to me by my sister many years ago and along with my Sweet Corn Pudding, is a highly requested recipe with leftovers (if there are any) always fought over! It can also be baked at the same time as the Corn Pudding although the corn pudding must go in first.
This is very sweet but for those of us who aren't fond of the marshmallow version, it is wonderful!

How to Make Sweet Potato Casserole


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Casserole: With a hand mixer, mix sweet potatoes, butter, eggs, sugar and vanilla in a bowl until smooth.
  3. Spread mixture evenly in a 9x13 pan
  4. Topping: In a medium bowl, combine the crushed cornflakes, brown sugar, 1/2 C melted butter and chopped pecans (can add more cornflakes and/or pecans if desired, I usually double this whole batch because I like a lot of crunchy on the top but some object to that much sweetness) until well mixed.
  5. Spread cornflake mixture over the top of the sweet potato mixture until the sweet potato mixture is completely covered.
  6. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until top looks crunchy golden-brown.
