129 ounce can sweet potatoes, drained
1stick or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup buttermelted
2cupscrushed corn flakes
3/4 to 1cupchopped pecans
Drain sweet potatoes and mash with milk and vanilla extract. Spread in the bottom of a casserole dish. I used a 7 x 11 inch casserole. Melt the butter and mix together with the brown sugar and crushed cornflakes.
Spread over the sweet potatoes in the baking dish. Sprinkle on pecan pieces. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 25 to 35 minutes. You can turn on broiler for 2 minutes to toast pecans after baking. Makes about 6 servings.
I crush my cereal in a plastic bag with the rolling pin. You could make this using about 4 or 5 raw sweet potatoes but you would need to bake them and peel before putting casserole together.
