Simple Sweet Potato Casserole--NEW

Recipe: Simple Sweet Potato Casserole--NEW NEW


    I know so many love sweet potato casserole so I decided to try to figure out how to make one with very few ingredients. So, here's my recipe for Simple, very simple, Sweet Potato casserole.

Serves 6 8


    5 sweet potatoes (about 8 oz each). Peeled and cut into one-inch (or so) cubes
    ½ cup of maple syrup. (You can use sugar-free syrup or regular)
    3 Tbl of butter or margarine
    1 bag of mini-marshmallows


    Preheat oven to 350.

    Bring a medium-large pot out and put in your potato cubes. Cover them with water and set them on the stove to boil. Boil the potato cubes for 15 minutes or until you pierce them with a fork and they are tender. Drain thoroughly.

    Put them in a large bowl and add the butter and syrup. Mash them. I do this with an electric mixer but you can choose your tool. Some use a ricer; some use an old-fashioned potato masher.

    When the potatoes are mashed you're going to put them in a 9 X 13 ovenproof pan. Cover the top of the potatoes with the marshmallows. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or so. You want your marshmallows puffed and golden. Serve warm.

Serving Suggestions:

    If you have extra budget you can add all kinds of other tidbits to jazz them up. You can add raisins, chopped nuts and even a teaspoon of dried ginger adds a nice kick. Or you can add a teaspoon or more of pumpkin spice and jazz it up that way. This dish tastes more like dessert than a vegetable to me, but that's what Thanksgiving dinner is all about.

Enjoy. Cheers! Zola
