This recipe is so good with this topping. I make mine with 1/2 t. vanilla and 1/2t. cinnamon. I skip the condensed milk- just use regular milk. Good sweet potatoes don't need that much sweetening. Use part brown sugar and part white sugar to gain the sweetness you like. The topping is different and that is what makes the casserole. I probably add more brown sugar on top with the cruch corn flakes and melted butter and pecans.

I served this as a side dish with a traditional turkey dinner but found it inapproriate for this. I doubled the recipe like it was suggested but had over 3/4 of it leftover. This recipe is extremely sweet, the sugar &/or evaporated milk definitely needs to be cut in half if not more. My husband and I ate the leftovers as a dessert.

This recipe is wonderful. Yes it is sweet, but you can adjust it to your taste. I think I cut back a little on the sugar and the condensed milk, but if I did it wasn't by much, because I also double the recipe. I added a few things like nutmeg, cinnamon, and a little OJ/lemon juice, which ever I had on hand. It was wonderful, I made it for Thanksgiving last year and then was asked to make it again 3 times before Christmas came around. It was a big hit and everyone has already requested it again for this years festivities. Definitely a new holiday tradition for my family and a keeper! Thanks for the recipe!!!!

I have been looking for this recipe for so long! My grandma used to make this every Thanksgiving and we all loved it! I lost the recipe and have never found one like it untill now. I think this is the Best Sweet Potato recipe ever!

I have used this recipe now 4 times in the last year. It's fantastic and you can still taste the sweet potatoes. Everyone loves the crunchy topping. I use ANY type of flake cereal.

We love this one! We DOUBLE the topping though as it just isn't enough for our family without arguing over who got the most of the "good stuff on top!"
