Notes from the Test Kitchen:
I love how these sweet potatoes are prepared. Cutting into chunks and not mashed, gives the potatoes a bit of extra texture. The sweet sauce poured on top is amazing! Of course, I had to top with a bit more marshmallows. This will be an impressive side dish at your holiday gathering.

Ingredients

8 large
sweet potatoes
3/4 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
3 Tbsp
butter
1 pt
whipping cream
4 Tbsp
flour
1 tsp
salt
1 1/4 c
marshmallows, mini

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Boil potatoes and check to see when they are just about done you don't want them mushy, you will have to take each potato out of the water as they are cooked. Let them cool or cool overnight. Cut in 1 inch pieces and place in a buttered 9 x 13 inch baking dish.
2
In the meantime, melt butter in a pan. Add flour and salt make a light roux. Then add the cream, stirring well to thicken. Now add brown sugar and the marshmallows and melt them in the sauce.
