Sweet potatoes

Butter

Milk

Marshmallows


Peel, cube, boil sweet potatoes. When they are very tender, drain. Add butter and milk to make mashed potatoes.

Whip sweet potatoes until creamy.

Put sweet potatoes into a casserole dish that leaves an inch from the sweet potatoes to the top edge.

About 15 minutes before dinner is to be served- reheat sweet potatoes in microwave.

Place Marshmallows on top of the sweet potatoes, covering them entirely.

Place in oven until marshmallows are puffy and starting to brown lightly on top. Dish will be extremely hot. Place on hot pad and serve right from casserole dish.

I find that one large sweet potato for every 3 people is about right.

You can put this dish together and set aside until the last 15 minutes before serving dinner. Usually when you would put in the rolls. This dish can be cooked anywhere from 350 – 450 degrees, depending on what else you are cooking. Just watch the marshmallows. When they start to puff out over the top of the dish, you need to take it out.

My grandmother used to put raisins and chopped pecans in this dish. Some people put in pumpkin pie spice. In actuality, most people prefer it plain.
