Candied Marshmallow Sweet Potatoes

Comment on this recipe

This recipe was passed down from my great-grandmother.

Ingredients

4-5 medium sweet potatoes or yams
1 egg, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Large marshmallows

Instructions

Peel, dice and boil potatoes in salted water until tender. Drain water and mash. Add all the above ingredients except the marshmallows and mix well. Place in greased casserole dish large enough to have almost an inch of bowl showing above the potato mix. Bake in 350 degree oven until heated completely through, about 45 minutes. If made the day before and refrigerated, plan to heat at least an hour or more. Top will begin to brown just a little. After completely hot, cover the top entirely with marshmallows and return to oven until marshmallows are puffed and golden brown. Watch carefully so marshmallows don't puff over the top.
