Holiday Sweet Potatoes with Marshmallow Cream

Angela Gray Recipe

Cook Time:

These Sweet Potatoes are my Granny's recipe, Clara Walker. What makes them extra special? You run your sweet potatoes through a food mill or fine colander and the potatoes are smooth with no lumps or strings. With the addition of some sugar, butter and vanilla these potato's really are the bomb ! The potato's are so smooth and creamy, almost like pie filling. And I haven't even got to the Marshmallow Cream part ! *This is not my picture but until I make them again this will have to do.


3 c
sweet potatoes, cooked
1 c
white sugar
1/2 c
melted butter
eggs, large
1/3 c
1 1/2 tsp
vanilla extract
1 jar(s)
marshmallow cream or regular mini-marshmallows

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Grease an 8x8 baking dish
Run the 3 cups of cooked sweet potatoes through a ricer, food mill or fine mesh sieve or colander.
Stir in the rest of the ingredients by hand.
Pour into baking dish.
Top with Marshmallow cream or mini marshmallow. * The marshmallow cream will come out of the jar easier if you microwave it for just a couple of seconds. NO longer or you will have a marshmallow volcano ! lol
Bake until puffy. Serve immediately
I always double this recipe so we will have leftovers for the next day. You can make this up the night before and then just pop it in the oven with foil to warm and THEN add the marshmallow.

This looks delish! Anyone make it with Brown Sugar rather than white sugar? Thinking of using this (trying something different than what my recipe)for Thanksgiving this year. Love the marshmallow cream idea instead of actual marshmallows!

I just made these. I sent my hubby to the store and he came back with canned sweet Potatoes.. used them anyway. I didn't have to strain them and I sampled to see how they taste. AMAZING... WILL BE KEEPING THIS ONE. We are having Thanksgiving today so the whole family can make it. And I know they will love them.. Thank you for sharing.
