This is one of my most favorite sides during the holidays; it’s easy to make, and my kids love it.
6 sweet potatoes
Bag of mini-marshmallows
Some butter – optional – I happen to put butter in everything
Some brown sugar – I used 1/4 cup
Proportions can change depending on your preference. Add more or less of any ingredient to suit your taste.
Boil potatoes with skins on. Can be boiled a day in advance. When done (when a knife easily enters the potato) let cool.
After the sweet potatoes have cooled enough to handle, remove the skins. The skin should just slide off.
Pre-heat oven to 350 F
Place ingredients directly into an oven proof dish. I use the Pumpkin casserole dish in the color flamebecause it has even heat and looks festive.
Chop or mash the sweet potatoes with a folk.
Sprinkle brown sugar over top
Sprinkle 3/4 mini-marshmallows over top
Dot with butter (if desired)
Mix all together
Cook at 350 F for about a half hour or until heated through.
Add the reminder of the mini-marshmallows on top for garnish.
