Streusel. My family was ignorant to the glorious pairing of sp + streu for years. Then one year my mother branched out, saved the marshmallows for the ambrosia salad (where they belong) and made streusel topped sweet potatoes.

We never looked back.

Streusel.

As if that is even a real debate. ;)

Streusel. Hands down. Save the marshmallows for smores.

Sweet potatoes, naked. Anything else just overpowers the delicious sweet potato flavor!

Neither for me. I like them with just a little bit of butter and maybe some crushed pecans. Yum.

Also, regarding my cheesecake, since I know you eat a lot healthier than me (ha), I bet you could take all of the sugar out of the crust. Those gingersnap cookies have so much sugar in them anyway, I felt like it was not necessary. I've also been wondering what tofu would be like mixed with some of the cream cheese rather than 3 whole packages of that…. hmmmmm.

i like mine with mini marshmallows only on thanksgiving, bc it is "thanksgiving" to me. if I will eat them any other day of the year it is without.

I'm intrigued as to what sweet potato streusel is…

I've never actually had sweet potato with marshmallow. I think the fact that it was orange always freaked me out so I never ate it.

Savory sweet potatoes are the way to go, why mess them all up with those wussy little marshmellows… :)

I get a giggle out of people here when I explain kumara (NZ sweet potato) is actually served sweet in the US. Actually, I giggle, while the kiwis look baffled and horrified. No topping needed – nor sugar – treat as a vegetable, I say!
