His and Her Sweet Potato Casserole

His and Her Sweet Potato Casserole, two Thanksgiving traditions come together, toasted marshmallows and pecan crumble toppings.  Scrumptious!!

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 indeed simple to make with few ingredients.   The miniature marshmallows toast beautiful 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!

  5. What a fabulous idea! We normally have one of each at Thanksgiving, but this is a great way to have it both ways and have it look amazing! Pinning to make!

    1. Thank you Carlee ~ and thank you for stopping CWK! Come back soon...

  6. Wonderful recipe! I have been struggling with this problem for years! My son and husband like marshmallows and my daughter and I don't. I've been switching the recipes each year to be fair, but now I don't have to. Genius!
