How to Make Hawaiian Style Sweet Potato Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Scrub unpeeled sweet potatoes. Place on a cookie sheet, bake for 30 minutes, then puncture several times with a fork. Cook an additional 20 to 30 minutes until tender. Cool, peel, and mash in a bowl.

  7. Butter a 2 quart, shallow casserole dish. Spoon potato/pineapple mixture into the prepared dish.
  8. Cover with foil and bake until heated through, about 20 minutes.
  9. Remove the pan from the oven. Cover the top with marshmallows. Return to oven, uncovered, and bake until marshmallows are browned as desired. Serve.
  10. NOTES: You can use any size marshmallows you desire; if using jumbo, cut in half before placing on top of the heated potato mixture.
