Sweet Potato Casserole

A quick and easy sweet potato casserole is a favorite side dish for our family.  It’s easily made gluten and allergy free by substituting just a few ingredients.
Ingredients needed:
Marshmallows
2 large sweet potatoes
1 stick vegan butter
1 cup brown sugar
1- 15 oz crushed pineapple (or 1 7/8 cup fresh crushed pineapple)
1 cup crushed Honey Chex Mix (alternative toppings include crushed pecans or an oatmeal, melted butter and brown sugar topping)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In these particular photos, I was making a large pan of sweet potato casserole for a crowd.
Microwave your sweet potatoes until soft.  Cool slightly so that you can peel the potatoes, cube into a bowl.  Add your butter and brown sugar and mash.  When your ingredients are mixed well, add pineapple along with juice.
Next, line your pan with marshmallows.
[I used over-sized marshmellows here, and it was just too much.  I suggest regular size]
Cover marshmallows with the sweet potato mixture.
The add your choice of topic and bake 20-25 min. at 350 degrees.
Remove from oven and cool before serving.  Enjoy!

    Yay for Mary getting tagged for the Liebster Blog Award! This recipe looks tasty. I’ve actually never had a sweet potato casserole. I do like sweet potatoes though.

      Rachel, I used to always eat baked sweet potatoes but had never had them in much of anything else. Now, I eat them in several different recipes. They have such a unique flavor :)

    YEY! Thanks Mary. I bookmarked this and will experiment with it on a weekend. We always have sweet potatoes boiled or sweetened and that’s it. Now I can introduce this to my mom. I’m pretty sure our little princesses would love to help me out :)

    Oh, the little ones love helping, especially if you give them the job of adding the marshmallows ☺ Let me know how it turns out for you Melissa!
