Classic Sweet Potato Casserole

Nothing says Thanksgiving like classic sweet potato casserole made with cinnamon, pecans and topped with toasted mini marshmallows!

Whether it’s a potluck, Friendsgiving or Thanksgiving with the fam, I’ve made this Classic Sweet Potato Casserole every year. There’s just something comforting about the smell of cinnamon, the sweetness of the warm mashed sweet potatoes, and toasted marshmallows that just make me happy. I mean all foods make me happy but you know what I mean. ;)

I’ve tried so many variations of this dish but this one is by far my favorite. It’s quick, easy, and simple. I’ve always believe simplicity is best.

This year, I’m hosting Friendsgiving for the first time EVER on Thursday. This is the first year my friends and I celebrate Thanksgiving together. We’re usually with our families but this year, there was a change of plans. So what’s the next best thing? Cooking all day with your besties while drinking wine and chatting for hours. How do we not run out of things to talk about!?

I can’t wait. I’m SO excited! I also need chairs. There’s a major chair drought in my house.

I digress.

I’ll be making my delicious Cuban-Style Thanksgiving Stuffing and, I’ll definitely be making this Classic Sweet Potato Casserole too! Maybe I’ll make caramelized sausages or bacon wrapped dates too while we wait for the turkey to be ready. Hmm…the possibilities are endless!

If you’ve added me on Snapchat, I’m sure you know that my friends are crazy, hilarious and simply the best. Aside from the million blessings I’m 1000% grateful for each day, I’m very thankful to have friends that have become family. <3
