Maple-Sweet Potato Casserole

Prep time 20 mins
Cook time 20 mins
Bake time 28 mins
Yield Makes 8 to 10 servings
A ricer is a kitchen utensil that resembles a large garlic press. Pressing the potatoes through it removes the stringy portion, leaving them smooth and fluffy.

Ingredients

  • 7 medium-size sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed (about 7 pounds)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter, cut up
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows

How to Make It

  1. Bring sweet potatoes, salt, and water to cover to a boil in a large Dutch oven. Boil 15 to 20 minutes or until tender; drain.

  2. Mash potatoes, or press though a ricer; stir in butter, brown sugar, and maple syrup. Spoon mixture into a lightly greased 11- x 7-inch baking dish.

  3. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes. Top evenly with marshmallows, and bake 8 more minutes or until marshmallows are puffed and golden.
