Sweet Potato Casserole With Marshmallows

Food & Party 10

sweet potato casseroleMy idea of heaven involves a lot of kittens and an endless supply of sweet potato casserole topped with warm, gooey, delicious marshmallows. All vegetables should be covered in sugar puff balls; life would be so much better, don't you agree? So this Thanksgiving, if you haven't tried a recipe like this before, I highly recommend forgoing the standard mashed potatoes and instead baking up a batch of this crowd-pleaser. Marshmallow sweet potato casserole is so good it will make your guests wonder if they've died and gone to the happy hunting ground. Kittens not included.

I do not eat sweet potatoes but I think I may save this recipe for Christmas dinner.  It sounds like something everyone would love.  We are not doing much for Thanksgiving.  We even ordered our meal out this year.  I work retail and have to be in to work at 11:00 p.m. on Thanksgiving day because we open at midnight.

Hardly anybody ate the sweet potato with marshmallows I made last year, so that's it for me.

I love sweet potato casserole. I am going to add more walnuts and skip the mallows. Time to live healthy I think :)
Great recipe anyway.
