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.
