1/2 pound sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans, divided (optional)
2 cups miniature marshmallows
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Additional Items: 11x7 inch or a good size casserole dish, nonstick cooking spray.
Place the sweet potatoes in a deep pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes or until very tender. Drain; cool slightly.
Place potatoes in a large bowl. Add sugar, butter, salt and vanilla extract. Mash sweet potato mixture with a potato masher, or for creamier version use a hand held beater and whip until light and fluffy. Fold in 1/4 cup pecans (if using). Spoon potato mixture into an even layer in an 11 x 7-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup pecans; top with marshmallows. Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes or until golden.
