Sweet Potato Casserole with Marshmallows

Can you believe Thanksgiving is only a week away?! It’s crazy! And it’s time to start planning out your meal if you haven’t already.

Last week I shared one of my Thanksgiving essentials – Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole. Today I share with you another true essential. Sweet Potato Casserole with marshmallows. No nuts here, my friends. I like it sweet, remember? Without this, my Thanksgiving feast is pretty much over.

For the past few years I’ve been working on perfecting these sweet potatoes. They truly are my favorite and they must be just the right combo of enough sweetness, marshmallows and the right consistency. Not too runny. I could eat these for every meal, every day. Even for dessert.

So if you don’t already have a recipe you love, or even if you do, these would be some good ones to try. Seriously. I practically lick the spot on the plate where these were. Just to get every last bite (or lick).

4. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes.
