What We are Eating - Sweet Potato Casserole

 I did not do a great job at taking individual photos of my food!  So, this photo shows both my Green Bean Casserole and Sweet Potato Casserole. 

Today I'm going to talk about my Sweet Potato Casserole.  It is amazing. 
I found this recipe years ago on a blog I followed called Comfy in the Kitchen

I love that it uses real sweet potatoes that you cook in the oven and then scrap the goodness out to mix with everything else. 

I love that it has two toppings.  Now, the recipe tells you to do diagonal lines of each type - the streusel and the marshmallow - but in this house some people only like marshmallow so I do half and half.  The lines make it look fancier HA!
