Sweet Potato Casserole

Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite things about Thanksgiving!  My recipe seems to evolve a little every year but I think I'm finally done changing it.  Marshmallows, pecan, sweet potatoes...what's not to like!

Sweet Potato Casserole
4 large sweet potatoes
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup brown sugar (plus a little to sprinkle on top)
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup pecans (coarsely chopped)
1 cup mini marshmallows

Peel and chop sweet potatoes into 1 in. cubes.  Boil cubed sweet potatoes until softened.  Mash sweet potatoes with butter.  Add brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.

Place mashed sweet potatoes into a large baking dish.  Top with mini marshmallows and pecans. Sprinkle with a little more brown sugar for good measure.  Bake @350 for 15-20 minutes or until heated through and marshmallows are slightly toasted!  Dig in!
