Are you hosting Turkey Day this year? Make it a feast to remember with these recipes and cooking tips.
You Will Need
- 4 lbs. sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
- 5 tbsp. butter
- 2/3 c. packed brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
- Pinch ground ginger
- 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 2 c. mini marshmallows
- 1/2 c. sliced almonds
- Baking dish
- 1/2 c. pecans (optional)
Place potato in baking dish
Place the sweet potatoes in the baking dish.
Combine the butter, brown sugar, nutmeg, ginger, salt, and cinnamon in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until the sugar dissolves.
Pour over potatoes
Pour the mixture over the potatoes, and then cover the dish with aluminum foil.
Bake for 50 minutes in a preheated oven set at 375 degrees Fahrenheit. After 50 minutes, take the foil off and continue baking until the syrup thickens, about 20 minutes.
Add marshmallows and almonds
Sprinkle the marshmallows and almonds on top of the potatoes, put the casserole back in the oven, and increase the oven heat to 500 degrees.
Put the casserole back in the oven until the marshmallows begin to melt and the almonds begin to brown, about 3 minutes. Then let your casserole cool and serve it warm.
