This sweet potato casserole is not just delicious but also simple and nourishing. Sweet potatoes are mashed with butter to give them their rich flavor before being topped off with gooey marshmallows for an unforgettable dish!
Preheat oven to 325° Fahrenheit and fil a medium or large pot with water.
Place the diced sweet potatoes in the pot and bring to a boil. Once the water is boiling, allow the potatoes to simmer for 15 minutes to soften.
Drain the potatoes and place them in a large mixing bowl. Combine the potatoes with the brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, cloves, salt, and vanilla. Mash until no chunks of potatoes remain. (If there are a few small chunks left, the casserole will still be okay.)
Pour the mashed potato mixture into an 8-inch baking dish and spread the marshmallows evenly over the top.
Bake the casserole for 35 minutes or until the marshmallows are lightly brown on top. Allow to cool slightly before serving.
