How to Make My Favorite Holiday Sweet Potato Casserole


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Bake sweet potatoes for about 1 hour until tender. Let cool to touch; peel and mash potatoes.
  2. Beat mashed potatoes, sugar and next 5 ingredients (half and half through salt) at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Spoon potato mixture into a greased 11 x 7 inch baking dish.
  3. Combine crushed cornflakes and next 3 ingredients in a small bowl. Sprinkle diagonally over casserole in rolls 2 inches apart (leave enough room for a layer of marshmallows).
