  1. Thanksgiving Eve I needed a recipe for a Sweet Potato casserole, went on Pinterest & was so confused as to which one recipe to use. I selected this recipe, which the only difference was I added some cinnamon, & it was absolutely delicious. Now I didn't mention that I have never dared for or made a Sweet Potato casserole, however I couldn't eat enough of it as well as my family. The consensus was it was the best Sweet Potato casserole everyone had ever eaten. Thank You for an excellent recipe & I will now start following your site. FIVE STAR RECIPE !!!

    I made this for Thanksgiving and LOVED it. I've always been so skeptical about making sweet potatoes sweeter in casseroles like this and the marshmallows always scared me away. I think that sweet potatoes are just so good as is! But this was AWESOME. Loved it and I will totally be making it again. It was like a little bit of pre-dessert dessert on my Thanksgiving plate :). Thanks for sharing!
