Just like turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce, sweet potato casserole is a must-have at every Thanksgiving table! This classic side dish is a fan-favorite, as the sweet potatoes mix perfectly with the crunchy pecans and creamy marshmallow topping. This dish is the perfect sweet bite to balance out a heavily savory plate, and could even be served as a dessert!
While there can be many variations on how to make the topping according to your preferences, the recipe below uses a mixture of both crushed pecans and mini marshmallows, for a bite that is filled with many textures and flavors. You can even prepare this dish up to three months in advance before baking it!
