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.

Step 2: Step 1

First, you must boil the sweet potatoes in a pot of water. The sweet potatoes should become tender enough to put a fork through them easily.

Step 3: Step 2

Next, drain the sweet potatoes in a drainer until all the excess water is drained.

Step 4: Step 4

In the same pot that was used to boil the potatoes, combine the potatoes with the cinnamon, brown sugar, white sugar, nutmeg, butter, vanilla, and heavy whipping cream

Step 5: Step 4

Using a hand held mixer, mix the ingredients together until they are thoroughly mixed. The mixture should be a smooth,orange texture.

Step 6: Step 5

Next, pour the mixture into the cooking pan, and smooth the contents out with a spoon.

Step 7: Step 6

Spread marshmallows over the top until it is completely covered. This will probably only take half of the bag.

Step 8:

Preheat the over to 350 degrees Farenheit. Place the potatoes in the oven for 25 minutes. The marshmallows should be turning brown on the top.

Step 9: Enjoy!

After 25 minutes, you may take the dish out and allow it to cool. Use a spoon to serve and enjoy!
