Marshmallow Sweet Potato Casserole
|2||pounds orange-fleshed sweet potatoes|
|2||tablespoons unsalted butter|
|1||(8-ounce) can crushed pineapple, well drained|
|2||tablespoons Stevia In The Raw® Bakers Bag|
|Freshly ground pepper|
|Marshmallows, preferably kosher|
Preheat the oven to 400° F. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
Bake the potatoes until they are soft 45 to 60 minutes. When cool enough to handle, peel the potatoes and place the flesh in a mixing bowl.
Mash the potatoes, using a fork or, if the potatoes are fibrous, whirl them in a food processor. Add the butter and mix until blended. Mix in the pineapple, stevia, salt and pepper. Spread the potato mixture in the prepared baking dish, smoothing the top. Cover with marshmallows, arranging them ½-inch apart in one layer. (If desired, the dish can be covered, and refrigerated overnight; bring to room temperature before baking.)
Bake the casserole for 20-25 minutes, or until the marshmallows are brown and crusty.
Let sit for 15 minutes before serving.

At last a recipe for sweet potatoes that doesn’t bury the sweet potatoes in extra sweet! I don’t understand why everyone wants to “candy” them?
