Sweet Potato Casserole





4 to 5 pounds of sweet potatoes (yams)

1 stick of butter

1 can of evaporated milk

1 cup of white sugar (if serving as dessert use 2 ½ cups of white sugar)

½ cup of brown sugar (if serving as dessert use 1 ½ cups of brown sugar)

4 eggs

1 teaspoon cornstarch

1 teaspoon of cinnamon (extra for topping)

Mini marshmallows for topping




Clean the sweet potatoes (yams) by rinsing them with water. Then place them in a large pot with enough water to cover them at least 1 inch. Bring to a boil and continue to boil until the potatoes are soft, about 45 minutes.


In a large mixing bowl add the butter. Drain the potatoes and remove the skin. The skin will come off easily. Place the potatoes in the bowl with the butter. Stir the eggs in a separate bowl then add to the mixing bowl. Also add the milk, sugars, cinnamon and cornstarch. Mix well with beater until batter is smooth.


Heat the oven to 350F. Butter a 9 x 12 baking pan.


Add the mixture to the pan. Sprinkle cinnamon on top. Add the marshmallows to the top. Cover the pan with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Then remove the foil and bake for 15 more minutes.
