Now before you go chasing me with broomsticks and pitchforks, this whole casserole only calls for 4 tablespoons of butter and 4 tablespoons of brown sugar. Not too bad, right?!

I mean, there are 2 cups of mini marshmallows on top, but you have to live once in a while… right?

What makes this sweet potato casserole even more special is that you don’t have to pre-boil the sweet potatoes!

Boom!

I hate dealing with piping hot taters and trying to peel and slice them without scorching your hands. Who needs that?!

I cut the sweet potatoes into 1/4inch thick slices and layered them in my casserole dish in a fun swirly pattern. To quicken the slicing process I used my trusty mandolin. I cut 6 sweet potatoes in less than a minute. Fist bump.

Once the potatoes are in the dish, pour in 1/3 cup water and cover tightly with tin foil. Bake them for about 50 minutes till they’re nice and tender.

Carefully open one end of the foil and drain the water from the dish. Then just drizzle the brown sugar butter mixture over the top, cover and bake for an additional 10 minutes.

    I like this recipe, however, I feel the yams are sweet enough on their own, so I am wondering if I could substitute butter, olive oil and some rosemary for the sauce, would that work as well using your method. Also could this recipe be done ahead of time, perhaps even the night before and just heat prior to serving your turkey dinner ?

    Thank you for the recipe, I'm going to give it a go today. I will not only be adding the marshmallows, I'm going to top that with roasted pecans and candied bacon. Boom! Happy Thanksgiving
  3. I love the arrangement of the potatoes in the dish and the recipe would be a hit up until the marshmallows for my guys. I think I might try this on the holiday just trying to come up with how to top it differently. The natural would be brown sugar but the recipe already calls for that so might over do the sweetness factor although marshmallows are a sweet treat on to themselves. I’m thinking maybe chopped candied pecans – what do you think. Would I be devoting to far from your dish to take that avenue? I have always been of the mind that a recipe is a starting place and you should alter to your family’s personal taste. Thanks for the inspiration, Christine
