I have been making this recipe for Thanksgiving for decades. Since my hubby is Hawaiian, it's our way of bringing the Islands to our holiday table.

Want to upgrade your regular sweet potato casserole? Look no further. Pineapple tidbits and juice add great pineapple flavor to this holiday staple. We love the texture they added too. With the perfect balance of sweetness, we highly recommend adding this side dish to your holiday menu. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Hawaiian Style Sweet Potato Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. 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.
  2. Cool, peel, and mash in a bowl.
  3. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees.
  4. Drain pineapple tidbits, reserving the liquid.
  5. Melt butter in a bowl in the microwave. Add butter, brown sugar, and salt. Combine with mashed sweet potatoes.
  6. Stir pineapple juice into potato mixture until it reaches the desired consistency. Fold in the reserved pineapple tidbits.
  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.
