Ingredients
  • 3 lb. sweet potatoes (4-5 large sweet potatoes)
  • 2 tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp. melted butter
  • ⅛ tsp. all spice
  • ⅛ tsp. cinnamon
  • ⅛ tsp. nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • TOPPING: ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • ½ chopped pecans
  • ¼ cup or 4 tbsp. melted butter
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows (more or less to your liking)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 475 degrees F. Wash and dry the sweet potatoes. Place the potatoes in the center middle rack and roast for about 45 min-1 hr. This time can vary, potatoes just have to be fork tender. Once cooled enough to handle, peel the potatoes and place in a mixing bowl. Roughly mash with a fork.
  2. Add sugar, butter, spices, vanilla, salt and orange zest. Mix well and continue to mash with a fork or a hand-held mixer for a smoother texture. Spread evenly in a medium size casserole dish.
  3. TOPPING- make the streusel/marshmallow topping by mixing all the ingredients together. It will be a crumble. Spread evenly on the potatoes. You can layer the streusel topping with the marshmallows. Add more or less of marshmallows as you like.
  4. BAKE- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cover the potatoes with foil and bake for about 20 minutes, this will heat the potatoes thru. May take longer if the casserole was refrigerated. Than take of the foil and let it bake for another 15-20 minutes. Again this time can vary depending on your oven temp. The streusel will brown and the marshmallows will melt and brown. If you want the marshmallows more blistered and brown give it few more minutes, keeping a close eye.
  5. Serve the casserole warm.
