Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I lost my usual recipe at Thanksgiving so I made this one everyone said it was the best that I've ever made! So I'm making it again for Christmas.

Can you do the same thing with fresh sweet potatoes after you boil them?

Yes, you absolutely can!

Is this a dish which could be made say the day before and reheated? If so, would I follow this recipe right to the end, then just reheat next day, or would I wait to add the marshmellows and complete the recipe from that point the day of serving? Thank you!

Hello! We do not recommend baking the dish the day before and reheating the next day, as the dish may taste dry the next day. However, you can combine all your ingredients (except marshmallows) the day before and refrigerate it overnight, so all you have to do is add the marshmallows and bake the next day. Enjoy!

Excellent Thanksgiving & Christmas side dish everyone loves it I sometimes use brown sugar and even a little pancakes syrup instead of white sugar sometimes sprinkle with a little cinnamon have heard of sprinkling with red-hot cinnamon candies then a layer of marshmallows but haven't tried that one yet

Add some crushed pineapple sometimes....makes it a little different...and good.

This is the receipe my mother used and I added crush pecans with the mini marshmallows and everyone has ask for this recipe
