Sweet Potatoes With Pecan Praline Streusel

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by MommyMakes

It wouldn't be the holidays without them! This casserole side dish can be made with just a hint of sweet or decadent enough for dessert! The pecan streusel caramelizes on top to make a pecan-pie like topping. This is one of those family recipes that you may need to play with the ingredient amounts a bit.

I made this for thanksgiving this year and it was delicious (I am eating some of the leftovers as I type and it is still good several days later...). Some of the family members like marshmallows on their sweet potatoes and some don't so I decided to make this without the marshmallows. I really don't see how they could improve upon the flavor! I misread the directions and accidently put in 1/2 c. of brown sugar in the potatoes. After I re-read the directions, I scraped out as much of the sugar in to the streusel, but I suspect there was more in there than 2 tablespoons. Loved it, this won't be just a holiday dish in my family.
