4medium to large sweet potatoescooked and peeled (I boil mine. You could also use canned sweet potatoes, drained. Two of the tall 40 ounce cans, but I think the uncanned are best)
1stick butter or 1/2 cup or 8 tablespoons
1/4cupheavy creamcould use evaporated milk or regular milk
1/4teaspoonground cinnamonCan use more of the spices if you like. I like to taste the sweet potatoes
1cupnutschopped (Walnuts or pecans)
Cook and peel sweet potatoes and mash with potato masher.
Add butter and cream to potatoes just like if mashing regular potatoes. Stir in brown sugar, egg, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Spray a casserole dish with cooking spray.
Put mashed sweet potatoes in dish and sprinkle nuts over the top. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes.
Remove from oven and add enough marshmallows to cover top of baking dish. Can use the miniature or big marshmallows. Put back in oven until marshmallows start to melt and brown on top. (I just stick mine under the broiler for a few minutes.)
I used a 7 x 11 casserole dish for this recipe. Reheats well in the microwave or oven. This dish could be put together the night before without the nuts and marshmallows and cooked the next day.
