It’s time to enjoy this delicious Maple Sweet Potato Casserole!
Get ready for a delicious Thanksgiving meal complete with Maple Sweet Potato Casserole.
One of my all time favorite foods for Thanksgiving and really any holiday is Sweet Potato Casserole.
My picky eater, who doesn’t eat veggies, he even ask for more! That’s a HUGE win in my book!
My favorite aspect of this casserole was the maple syrup. I absolutely love real maple syrup. It is my ultimate picture of comfort food.
This recipe was one that I actually stayed really close to the actual recipe. I tend to always adapt and change a few things, but I love that it uses foods that you would find in your pantry.
My husband request this on a regular basis now, but it’s one of his favorite sweet tasting side dishes.
How do you make Maple Pecan Sweet Potato Casserole?
It also includes the signature part of sweet potato casserole, marshmallows. I always have to sneak a few too before they go on top of the casserole. What can I say, they speak to me.
The one thing I did do was only put pecans on half of the casserole.
I am allergic to pecans and thankfully am not deathly allergic so the cross contamination isn’t a huge concern for me, but I still wanted to be able to eat some of this casserole.
I also topped it with cinnamon as well. As soon as it came out of the oven we were ready to dig in!
