Joanna Gaines Sweet Potato Casserole

This copycat version of Joanna Gaines Sweet Potato Casserole is one of my favorite sides! Fluffy sweet potatoes topped with a crunchy cornflake with pecans and toasted marshmallows.

This isn’t just for Thanksgiving. This recipe fits with other really tasty Easter side dishes too. Picture it next to your gorgeous Easter roasts and all those bright Spring salads!
