  • 2 lbs Sweet Potatoes, peeled and chopped into 2-inch chunks
  • 3/4 cup Milk
  • 4 tbsp Butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Cloves
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Crushed Pecans
  • 3-4 cups Mini Marshmallows


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large pot with salted boiling water, boil the peeled and chopped sweet potatoes for 10-12 minutes or until fork-tender.
  • Drain the sweet potatoes and place them in a bowl. Allow the sweet potatoes to slightly cool and then add the milk, brown sugar, melted butter, ground cinnamon, ground cloves, ground nutmeg, and vanilla extract.
  • Add the eggs and blend until smooth.
  • Pour the sweet potato mixture into a well-greased 9x13 baking dish. Sprinkle crushed pecans over the casserole and then an even layer of mini marshmallows.
  • Bake for 45 minutes.
  • Allow casserole to cool for 10 minutes before serving.


For a chunky sweet potato casserole, use a potato masher instead of an electric mixer.
