Sweet potato casserole is my favorite dish made during the holidays. This recipe was orginally from my aunt, who passed the recipe on to my mom. Every Thanksgiving and Christmas I always make sure my mom prepares this dish.

Step 1: Ingredients

The ingredients include 6 raw, sliced sweet potatoes, 1 bag of marshmallows, 1 teaspoon cinammon, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 1/2 cup white sugar, a dash of nutmeg, a melted stick of butter, 2 teaspoons vanilla, and 1/4 cup of heavy whipping cream. You will also need a oven safe, cooking dish.
