Any which way, being a safe 3,000 miles away from my family, when Passover rolled around this year, I took it upon myself to make my own sweet potato casserole.
Follows are steps you can take to make your own. Oh rapture!
Step 1: Go get stuff.
5 large sweet potatoes (or two cans of yams)
1/4 stick of unsalted butter and/or maple syrup equivalent
1 tsp brown sugar
5 shakes of ground cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla
1 bag of little marshmallows
1 bag of large marshmallows
- casserole dish
- sharp knife
- measuring spoons
- aluminum foil
Step 2: Cook the sweet potatoes
Wrap them in tin foil.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Put them in the oven for an hour to an hour and a half. Take them out only when they are soft all the way through. You can tell when this is by taking one out and sticking a knife through it. If the knife slices through easily, then it is obviously soft all the way through.
Step 3: Get the scoop.
Step 4: Mix in some flava'.
- ground cinnamon
- brown sugar
- butter and/or syrup (for moisture)
Mash them in one at a time. Continue mashing until all the big chunks of potato have been broken up. It should be relatively creamy.
