Marshmallow Sweet Potato Casserole

Doesn’t it look AMAZING? Well it totally is. This is the dish that defines thanksgiving to me. I love, love, love, this dish, even more than the turkey and stuffing. Ok maybe not the stuffing. But this is definitely something that everyone has to have on the thanksgiving dinner table, and i am more than glad to share the recipe with you guys. I actually took it from Emeril’s recipe and modified it a little since i was lacking some ingredients.

Thanksgiving Marshmallow Sweet Potato Casserole

5 Ibs of Sweet Potato (Preferably from the farmer’s market!)
2 Tbs of butter
Splash of whole milk
1/4 cup of Brown Sugar
1 Tbs of Vanilla Extract
1/4 cup of Maple Syrup
1/2 tsp of Cinnamon
1/4 tsp of Grounded all Spice
1/4 tsp of grounded cloves
1 cup of chopped pecans + 1/4 cup for topping
A bag of Marshmallow

Wrap the sweet potatoes in foil and place them on a baking tray. Bake in oven at 400 degrees for an hour. Remove from oven. Let it cool and peel off the skin.

Mash the sweet potatoes. Add the rest of the ingredients as you are mashing. Add more milk to desired creaminess. Add more spices to your liking.

Fill the casserole dish with the mash sweet potatoes. Even it. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup of pecans over it. Arrange marshmallows on the sweet potato however way you like it, pushing it a little into the sweet potatoes. I like to do it in a bundle and not cover the entire casserole dish because i like to see the orange and the white on the dish when served.

Tent with foil. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Take out foil. Bake for another 20 minutes till marshmallow turns brown. Alternatively, turn on the broiler for a few minutes to achieve brownness. Serve the dish hot.
