Baked Sweet Potato Casserole Recipe

Looking for a new way to eat sweet potatoes? Try this Baked Sweet Potato Casserole from www.drugstoredivas.net.I never had sweet potato casserole before. It was just one of those things that never made an appearance on our Thanksgiving table. For no good reason, I decided this was going to be the year I tried it. We weren’t hosting Thanksgiving, so I decided I would just make it for us as part of dinner one night.

I asked for recipes on Drugstore Divas’ Facebook page and they were just all more involved than I wanted them to be: dice, boil, mash, bake, create a pecan crumble while you’re waiting. I work 14 hours a day and have pretty non-existent cooking skills. That wasn’t gonna work for me.

But what if I could just make baked sweet potato casserole, I thought. It would have all the same flavors — without the work. Perfect. And that’s how these came out. We really liked them, so they’ll be something added to our meals. Plus, who doesn’t want a little bit of Thanksgiving on any random Thursday? You can definitely make these any weeknight — or any night, really.

Pre-heat your oven to 400. While you’re waiting, wash your sweet potatoes. Stab them with a fork (I do it around the entire thing, in strips).

Bake for 45 minutes at 400 degrees, directly on the rack. Turn off the oven and let them sit there for another 15 minutes.

Fill the slit with two tablespoons brown sugar and mini marshmallows (we fit about eight in a medium-sized sweet potato).

Broil until you get a char on the marshmallows. Then, serve warm.

    I made these tonight and they are delish. I did add a dab of butter before I added the brown sugar. I will definitely be making these again.
