Thoughts on Thanksgiving + Delicious Recipe

Sweet Potato Casserole

2 cups mashed sweet potatoes or yams
3 tablespoons butter, melted
3/4 cup sugar
5-ounce can evaporated milk
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla

Combine all ingredients and pour into greased casserole dish. Sprinkle with topping. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until set. Let it sit about 10 minutes before serving. For a 9-by-13-inch pan, double the recipe and increase the baking time to 40 minutes or until set.

1 cup corn flakes, coarsely crushed
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
1/3 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons butter, melted

Toss all ingredients together. Sprinkle on potatoes.

Note: when doubling the recipe, use 1 1/2 cups corn flakes and increase the butter to 4 tablespoons. Use the same amounts for the nuts and sugar.
