Mashed Sweet Potato Casserole

29 04 2011

So I know everyone has there own version of sweet potato casserole. The casserole with the marshmallows on top. It is a favorite in our household. In  fact when my husband and I were first married we would just buy a can of yams at the store and make it for our dinner side dish any time of year. Over the years I have adapted my sweet potato casserole a bit and to serve along with our ham I made a mashed sweet potato casserole. It can be adapted to fit anyone’s taste by adding less sugar, rolled oats, pecans, and any variety of spices. Make it your own and I hope you enjoy.


Mashed Sweet Potato Casserole

~ 1lb sweet potatoes or yams

~ 1/2 cup brown sugar

~ 4 Tbsp. butter

~ 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

~ Marshmallows

1. Wash and peel the sweet potatoes. Then boil until fork tender.

2. When the sweet potatoes are fork tender drain and add to a bowl. Mash up the sweet potatoes until the desired consistency and then mix in the butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon.

3. Place in a 8 x 8 baking dish and top with marshmallows. Bake at 350o F for about 10-15 minutes or until marshmallows are brown and sweet potatoes are heated through.

* Mix in chopped pecans or rolled oats for added flavor.
