 Ingredients List

  • 2 1/4 lb Sweet potatoes
  • -(canned or precooked)
  • 2 c Milk
  • 3 tb Brown sugar
  • 3 tb Butter, melted
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1 ds Pepper
  • 1 ds Cinnamon
  • 1/4 c Raisins
  • Marshmallows


Mash sweet potatoes by putting through a sieve or beating in an electric
beater or using a potato masher or food mill. Add milk gradually (if you
add it too fast it splashes and is hard to mix in).

Mix in remaining ingredients. Put in buttered casserole. Heat through
(bake in slow oven 250 degrees F.) for 20-30 minutes, or in microwave).

Cover top with marshmallows. Return to oven until marshmallows are
slightly melted and a bit brown. (If the oven is too hot, the marshmallows
will disappear!) This step cannot be done in the microwave.
