I can’t say that sweet potato casserole is my absolute favorite Thanksgiving food because I love almost ALL Thanksgiving goods, but it’s pretty close to the top. I’m a Southern girl and do not believe a sweet potato casserole is truly a sweet potato casserole if it has marshmallows on top. It must have pecans and brown sugar on top. :)
Although . . . this joint venture of marshmallows and pecan topping AND cornflakes from Women Living Well might be able to convert me. This looks wonderful! I wonder if democrats and republicans could get along as nicely as these toppings are on this sweet potato casserole??
FitSugar gives us a healthified version of this beloved Sweet Potato-Pecan Casserole and uses fresh sweet potatoes. Do you use fresh or canned sweet potatoes in your casserole? I love both, but fresh just tastes, well, fresher. :)
I thought this was an interesting take on the traditional mashed sweet potatoes we find in our casseroles. The Runaway Spoon created a Southern Candied Sweet Potato Casserole with Pecan Streusel. I really like the way this looks.
For my vegan and gluten-challenged friends, here’s Green Plate Rule’s Vegan and Gluten-Free Sweet Potato Casserole. It uses coconut butter – yum! – almond milk, and gluten-free flour and I think it looks wonderful!
Just so you guys don’t think I’m prejudiced or close-minded, here’s one with just straight marshmallow topping. :) I know we’re all different and everyone has their preference – especially when it comes to such important things as sweet potato casserole toppings! This one is from Pennies on a Platter.
And that, my friends, is our sweet potato casserole recipe round up for Thanksgiving. Anyone hungry yet??
Have a great weekend!
