When I made them for the office party, everyone enjoyed this but you could leave out the nuts if you chose to:
1c packed brown sugar
1/3c flour
1/3c butter
1c chopped pecans
Combine brown sugar and flour; cut in butter and add pecans.
Top sweet potatoes and bake for 30 minutes.

This is really good with the nuts, but you could leave out and replace with more corn flakes.

Melt 1 margarine/butter, add 1 C brown sugar, 1 C pecans and 2 C crushed corn flakes. Sprinkle over baked casserole and return to oven for 10-15 minutes

We love it over sweet potatoes!!

We have used a recipe for years of a sweet potato casserole with marshmallows on the top. [g] I know...not the healthiest choice, but we cut back on the sugar and cream that is mixed into the sweet potatoes, so that it is barely 2-3 T each of light cream and brown sugar in a large casserole. A serving actually ends up having about 1-2 marshmallows on it. Not too bad. :-)

How about some Brown Sugar, Cinnamon and Butter or...

I've heard of some recipes with coconut... never tried it but sounds good.

You could leave out the nuts here as well.


1/3 cup flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup flaked coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup butter, melted

Combine all above ingredients until smooth. Pour into 2 qt. casserole dish. Mix all topping ingredients and spread over sweet potato mixture.

Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes.
