Side dish • Sweet
My dad and I love pumpkin pie, and this has a similar flavour but is a little more “healthy.” It complements the normally savoury parts of Christmas dinner well.
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Grease 9 x 13-inch baking dish.
Bring a large pot of water to boil, add sweet potatoes and boil until slightly underdone, about 15 minutes. Drain, cool and peel.
In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine margarine, brown sugar, 2 cups marshmallows, cinnamon and nutmeg. Cook, stirring occasionally, until marshmallows are melted.
Stir potatoes into sauce. While stirring, mash about half the potatoes, and break others into bite-sized chunks. Transfer to prepared dish.
Bake for 15 minutes. Remove and cover top evenly with marshmallows. Bake until marshmallows are golden brown.
