Thanksgiving for our Faculty: Mrs.Pettus


Kristen Anderson, Contributor, 7th grade

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and it’s time for us to discover our next fabulous recipe. Already from Mrs.Weyant and Mrs.Devito, we have two recipes: sausage bread and sweet potato wedges. In this issue, we have more sweet potato fare: sweet potato casserole! The addition of pineapple sets it apart from other more orthodox recipes.

Mrs.Pettus’ Sweet Potato Casserole

All the usual flavors of Autumn but with a tropical twist.

Ingredients (Casserole)

2 cans whole sweet potato

1 can crushed pineapple

1/8 tsp. nutmeg

2 tsp. light brown sugar

1/2 tp. salt

1/4 cup butter

Ingredients (Topping)

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup butter

2 cups corn flakes


Start by combining all the ingredients for the casserole in a large mixing bowl. Once well mixed, pour into a 9 by 13 greased glass pan. Mix together the ingredients for the topping before sprinkling on the casserole. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Enjoy!
