Must Have Thanksgiving Sweet Potato Casserole

To me it would not be Thanksgiving without sweet potatoes. There are many ways to fix sweet potatoes and we have made a great variety of recipes our selves. As long as they are invited to the table it does not matter how they come dressed up. Thus whether they are mashed and served plain, in a fancy casserole or even via a sweet potato pie they are delicious.

This sweet potato casserole is sweet and delicious with a praline pecan topping. Kids will love it and so will adults with a sweet tooth. The top of the casserole is covered with mini mallows and baked just til they are toasted

Mashed Sweet Potatoes:
3 pounds sweet potatoes
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup half and half
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp salt

Start with cooking the sweet potatoes in the oven or on the stove. Then mash them really well in a food processor or with a potato masher or even a fork. If you are using anything other than a food processor, make sure the potatoes are completely smooth. That will give you the creamiest sweet potato casserole ever.

Mix up all to make sweet potato mixture

Now comes the fun part: Marshmallows! Now, this part is totally optional but I wouldn’t skip it. I love the flavor and the texture of melted marshmallows. Some would top the casserole with marshmallows but I just folded them into the sweet potato batter because the texture matches better. I save the top for the crunchy texture!

To top the sweet potato casserole,use brown sugar and chopped pecans, just simply sprinkling them on top. Bake the casserole for 25-30 minutes and served it warm. I assure you that this sweet potato casserole is amazingly good, whether cold or warm.
