Marshmallows on Sweet Potatoes: WHY?!

Excuse me readers while I partake in a little bit of a rant. And I’m sorry to say, David Lebovitz, that it was inspired by your post.
I HATE WHEN PEOPLE PUT MARSHMALLOWS ON SWEET POTATOES.
Whew. Ok thanks, I feel a little bit better.
But seriously, there are tons of recipes out there like Sweet Potato Casserole or this Holiday Sweet Potato Bake that just douse their precious sweet potatoes in sugary, gloppy marshmallow goop. And I just don’t get it! Why do you people do this?!
Don’t you understand that the sweet potatoes are tasty enough on their own because they have the amazing capacity to glaze themselves when cooked? If it were up to me, I’d NEVER add anything to sweet potatoes because they’re so delicious on their own! It just so happens that we served them with carrots and beef brisket in our tzimmes, but that’s nothing compared to unneccessarily adding marshmallows.
I’m sorry if I offend anyone but I just think you need to try a sweet potato without marshmallows or any additives for once. And when you do, I’m pretty sure you’ll wonder why you ever wasted your money on that pack of JetPuffed Marshmallows (sorry Kraft!)
