What comes to mind when you think of Thanksgiving? I think of three things: Turkey, apple pie, and sweet potato casserole. Of course, there are dozens of other dishes that grace the table on this particular day, but the sweet potato casserole is always the one I gravitate toward each and every time. This particular casserole has taken on a variety of different versions, but I've perfected it and am happy to share with you just in time for Thanksgiving. This sweet potato casserole is not only made with the most perfectly toasted marshmallows, but it packs a secret ingredient you will love: cookies.
Why cookies? Well, why not? I like to think of this sweet potato casserole as a side dish and dessert all in one. This recipe is insanely easy to follow and really only requires boiling the potatoes, blending them with spices, baking in a dish with marshmallows, so really, the addition of the cookies isn't an extra step. It's more of added flavor and texture. Adding chocolate chip cookies to the bottom of the sweet potato adds a chocolatey, sweet, with a crumbly texture to the soft, silky sweet potatoes and lush marshmallows on top. It's really a treat, and I PROMISE your guests will ask you for this recipe time and time again. It's just so easy and satisfying. Any leftovers the next day can easily pair with leftover turkey, grilled chicken, or just as a snack.
This sweet potato casserole will be your go to every year on Thanksgiving, or any holiday really. It's perfect when paired with grilled chicken, chicken cutlets, a side of veggies, or even meatballs. Go nuts and make this for dinner and have at the entire thing, no judgment here. Either way, enjoy making this year the best year ever with friends, family, and delicious food to feed the moment together. Happy Thanksgiving!
There are some recipes that are timeless, and having a sweet potato casserole at the Thanksgiving table is one of them. This silky, creamy, buttery casserole with perfectly (or extremely) toasted marshmallows on top, plus a secret ingredient is exactly what you need this year, alongside your Turkey and stuffing. I guarantee you'll be fighting over the last serving for this!
