Sweet Potato Casserole

Sweet potatoes are a nutritional powerhouse, full of vitamin A, potassium, and fiber.  A little fat in the recipe will help your body absorb the vitamins.  The marshmallows bring out the kid in all of us – who doesn’t like eating toasted marshmallows at dinner?

 

6 sweet potatoes, pierced and wrapped in foil

¼ cup butter or coconut oil

1 tsp cinnamon

1 package mini marshmallows

 

Bake sweet potatoes until soft, allow to cool, and remove peeling.  This can be done a day ahead of time or while the turkey is roasting, about 45 minutes to an hour.

Mash in a bowl, adding butter and cinnamon.

Spread in a 9 x 13in pan, then top with marshmallows

Bake at 350 until marshmallow topping is brown
