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!
