Sweet Potato Casserole – Southern Style with Marshmallow and Walnuts

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.

The Best Green Bean Casserole

This is definitely my favorite Green Bean Casserole recipe.  Just have a look at the ingredients and I think you’ll agree or at least understand why I feel the way I do.  I mean, Bacon says it all doesn’t it?  I’ve been wanting to throw down some traditional Holiday recipes, this season, that are a little more vibrant than what we’ve been use to in the past.  At the same time though, I wanted to make sure that the change was subtle enough to not take over the recipe and actually ruin the over all flavor.  I believe this recipe is more than successful with that, adding even 3 other ingredients; Portobello Mushrooms, Bread Dressing Stuffing and Cheese!
