Hey there,

After sharing the picture of my Sweet Potato Casserole I’ve had several request for the recipe.  And you’re not going to believe this but I don’t have a recipe. I’ll tell you the ingredients and how I make it and then you can play with it.  I really don’t think you can mess it up ….unless you add too much sugar.

Boil your sweet potatos …yes boil them!! for years I’ve cooked them in the microwave and I promise you the boiling is the way to go!!

Once they’ve boiled and you’ve peeled them put them in a bowl & add these items:

  • brown sugar
  • nutmeg
  • cinnamon
  • cloves
  • butter (real butter)
  • vanilla

I don’t have measurements because it totally depends on how many potatoes you cook.   The way I know when it’s right is I taste it ….to me it almost tastes like pumpkin pie at this point.   Then you slowly add some evaporated milk.  Stir and add some more.  Don’t add too much or they’ll be runny (I would say half a can should do it).

Pour into a casserole dish, add your marshmallows to the top.  Bake at 350 for 30 to 40 minutes.
