Welcome to Frugal Food Thursday! If you have a great frugal recipe, please link up below!
Can you believe that Thanksgiving is only two weeks away? Like we often say about the Jewish holidays, it seems that Thanksgiving is falling early this year!
Here's one of my all-time favorite Thanksgiving recipes. I love the combination of the sweet potatoes and pineapple in the casserole, and the brown sugar-glazed Special K pieces on top are to die for!
Here's the recipe:
THANKSGIVING YAM CASSEROLE
3 lbs. whole sweet potatoes
8 oz crushed pineapple, undrained
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
2 cups Special K cereal
1 tsp cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Wash sweet potatoes, removing any eyes. Prick sweet potatoes several times each with a fork. Microwave for 12 minutes, turning sweet potatoes over halfway through. Allow sweet potatoes to cool, then remove skins from the flesh and put in a large mixing bowl. Mash the sweet potato flesh with a potato masher.
Add pineapple, spices, sugar, and butter or margarine and mix well. Place mixture in a 9x9 casserole dish.
Make crunchy topping: In a medium bowl, mix brown sugar, melted butter or margarine, and Special K together until the cereal pieces are coated. Spread the crunchy topping evenly on top of the sweet potato mixture. Sprinkle with cinnamon
Bake for 30 minutes, uncovered, or until the topping is brown and crisp.
