Thank you Aunt Brenda for this dish, it has been a family Thanksgiving dish and will continue down the line with the next generation.

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. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Rosie's Sweet Potatoes

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. Cut in half and peel. Then let them cool or cool overnight. Cut into 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.
  3. When done, pour over the potatoes and place in a 350* degrees oven and bake until warmed through. You can put some marshmallows on the top of the potatoes if you like. ENJOY!
