The Best Sweet Potato Casserole

This is, hands down, the absolute best Sweet Potato Casserole I have ever had, I swear!  And if that’s not enough of a selling point, I’m talking about Butter, Sugar, Cinnamon, Marshmallows and an awesome Walnut Crisp Crunch on top.  This is a classic Southern recipe that can be served for any dinner; especially Thanksgiving.  But this dish is so fresh and sweet you could top this off with some Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and serve it for dessert, it’s that good.

How I like my Sweet Potato Casserole

I’ve mixed the ideas of several different Sweet Potato recipes to develop this dish.  I love the traditional way my Grandmother always made it; sliced with toasted marshmallows over the top.  But, I also love the Southern style with a Walnut Apple pie style crisp or with Pecans, if you prefer.  Either way is delicious but when you combine the two, you end up with a symphony of flavors that just dance around your mouth with every bite.

Poor Man's Gourmet Kitchen

I’m just a regular guy in search of his bliss and I find that bliss in food and all of its many cultural differences. A very seasoned and experience chef taught me how to use my pallet to best serve and prepare a dish with all of its natural flavors from other foods before ever introducing “forced flavoring”, such as salt. My goal isn’t just to teach how to incorporate these products into simple gourmet dishes but to show, how easy, it can be done from anyone’s Kitchen with cheaper, convenient substitutions that will not only blow your mind, but insure that most no one will be able to ever tell the difference!
