Rollene’s Sweet Potato Casserole
- 6-8 medium sweet potatoes
- 1 C sugar
- 1 stick of butter
- Dash of salt
- 4-5 eggs, slightly beaten
- Dash of vanilla
- Lots of marshmallows
Start by cooking the sweet potatoes — you can either bake them or boil them. If you bake them, heat your oven to 400 degrees, wrap the potatoes in tin foil and bake until tender, about 45 min. If you boil them, use a large stock pot, and boil them for about 45 min. Either way, once they’re done cooking and have cooled, peel & mash the sweet potatoes.
Add the sugar and butter to the potatoes and mix. Then add the salt, eggs, vanilla, and mix well. If the mixture is really thick, add a little milk. Once the mixture looks good, pour into an 8×12 greased baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.
After the 35 minutes, place marshmallows on top (be generous with the mallows), and bake until the tops are lightly browned. Definitely keep an eye on the marshmallows — we’ve had a few burnt marshmallow incidents over the years, but they’re easily fixed.
