No recipe image available.This isn't the sticky-sweet marshmallow-topped sweet potatoes from most childhood memories of sweet potatoes. You can even add a couple tablespoons of orange juice to add a bit of citrus flavor.

1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
4 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 cup crushed cornflake crumbs

Cooking Directions:

  1. In large bowl, mix together well the potatoes, sugar, eggs, vanilla and salt. Place mixture in a 13x9x2-inch greased baking dish.
