His and Her Sweet Potato Casserole {Two Thanksgiving Traditions Come Together}


Sweet Potato Casserole

His and Her Sweet Potato Casserole is the perfect sweet potato dish.  We have half of our family that likes the marshmallow topping, and half that like the crumble topping, so last year, I came up with the idea to serve one dish with two variations.  It was such a hit that I decided to make it again this year.

His and Her Sweet Potato Casserole is really simple to make with few ingredients.   The miniature marshmallows toast really nice along side the crumble topping, and the smooth texture of the sweet potatoes just melt in your mouth.  Two Thanksgiving traditions in one fabulous dish!

1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup pecans, chopped
