I know that Thanksgiving has already come and gone, but I could not not share (ah…double negative) this sweet potato recipe.
Sweet potatoes at Thanksgiving never were a big interest of mine. I always focused my eating concentration on foods that I knew I loved: turkey, cranberries, and stuffing. But this year I decided I was going to try sweet potatoes for the first time (that I remember). I was a sweet potato newbie, and I wanted to make the perfect sweet potato dish.
So I went browsing through sweet potato recipes, trying to find the best one out there. Out of many options, I found a souffle topping with a marshmallow glaze. It sounded delicious, and I bookmarked the recipe for Thanksgiving. That was the plan until the night before, only hours prior to the commencement of Thanksgiving, I found this streusel topped sweet potato recipe. I knew I need look no further- this was it. This was going to be the sweet potato dish we ate for Thanksgiving. Luckily, we had all the ingredients on hand already, and I didn’t have to make too many changes to the cooking schedule
This is a great sweet potato dish. Whipped, creamy sweet potatoes are seasoned with fall spices and topped with a crunchy, sweet struesel topping. For someone who never had sweet potatoes before, I am not sure if I ever want to eat them any other way now.
If you need more convincing that this sweet potato recipe is the best, this is all that was left to take a picture of:
