I am so excited about Thanksgiving dinner next week! I bought some sweet potatoes at the store so I could make this casserole for my girls. I finally had a chance to make it with our dinner tonight. I also made Bobby Deen's "Unfried Chicken", which was really good. I will post that recipe later.
This sweet potato casserole is my own recipe that I experimented with until the flavors were just right. This is a sweet and creamy side dish that goes well with all the savory side dishes. Happy Thanksgiving!
4 large sweet potatoes
2 T butter, softened
1/4 C light brown sugar
1/4 C milk
1 1/2 tsp apple pie spice
dash of salt
1 C mini marshmallows
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray.
Poke holes in the sweet potatoes using a fork. Microwave on high for 7-9 minutes, depending on size of potatoes. They are done when you can easily insert a fork into the middle without any resistance.
Let rest for about 5 minutes, or until cool enough to handle. Cut open the potatoes, scoop out the flesh, and put in a large stand mixer bowl. Add the butter, brown sugar, milk, apple pie spice, egg, and salt. Mix until well blended.
Pour mixture into prepared casserole dish and top with marshmallows. Bake for 15 minutes, or until marshmallows are lightly browned on top. Enjoy! Happy Thanksgiving!
