Sweet potato casserole is one of the quintessential Thanksgiving foods. It makes an appearance alongside the turkey on everyone’s holiday table. In my family, we have it again on Christmas, too. The version everyone expects is the one that’s covered in marshmallows. This year, I’m taking a stand against this marshmallow-topped calorie bomb. Not only does the traditional sweet potato dish deliver tons of extra sugar, fat and calories, it doesn’t even taste good. Not in my opinion, anyway. Sweet potatoes are naturally sweet; they don’t need the help of marshmallows. They’re perfectly delicious on their own — baked, mashed, or turned into fries — or in a casserole, spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger and topped with pecans.
