Marshmallow Sweet Potatoes

During the holiday season, I find myself craving comfort food like corn bread, green beans, and of course, sweet potatoes.  I’ve had sweet potatoes so many ways, but there is something festive about these extra sweet potatoes.


  • 3 large sweet potatoes, cooked until tender, or 1 29-oz. can of sweet potatoes
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows


Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine the sweet potatoes, egg, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla extract in a bowl and mix with an electric mixer on medium speed for 2 to 3 minutes. Empty the mixture into a 2-quart ungreased baking dish. Bake uncovered for 25 minutes. Top with the marshmallows and bake for an additional 5 minutes. Serves 4 to 6.
