Sweet Potatoes With Pecan Praline Streusel

"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.

    Made this for Thanksgiving dinner. Yummy! It went really well with smoked turkey. Next time, I will not put marshmallows on the top. It just seemed like sweet overload.

    I had made this previously with canned sweet potatoes for my family. Tonight I made it with fresh sweet potatoes and served it to a group and it got absolutely rave reviews! Well worth the time of peeling & chopping. This will be our go-to sweet potato recipe from here on out!! Thank you!

    Made this for Christmas Eve dinner and it was GREAT! I used only 1/4 of the marshmallows called for, as I didn't want it to be super sweet. The topping is so delicious and my husband raved about how good they were. Thanks for the recipe!
