Nothing says Thanksgiving more than a freshly baked sweet potato casserole with a crumble topping😍It's a classic holiday dish and it just got even better (who knew that was possible)! Usually this scrumptious casserole is topped with marshmallows or a brown sugar pecan topping, but we stepped outside the box and topped ours with chopped medjool dates and a nut + seed mix. This dish is bound to be the star of your holiday dinner!
