Did not make this, although it looks very good! I just wanted to point out, because it may be important to some, I was under the impresstion that marshmallows aren’t vegetarian because they have gelatin. I am NOT vegetarian but I do have vegetarians in my family. I think some vegetarians may be unaware of this and/or some consider this a ‘grey’ area. But all in all, they are NOT truly vegetarian, sorry.
That’s true, gelatin is made from animals. We removed the “vegetarian” tag. Thanks for pointing that out, Marie.
It is SO MUCH BETTER with the marshmallows on top~ (if U NEVER had it like this~ U owe it to yourself to try it at east ONCE!!) It’s that good!!
Can this recipe be halved?
Hi, Natalie! It sure can be.
Hi Sally! This sweet potato casserole with marshmallows is a staple of our Thanksgiving table for many years now. I have always prepared the purée a few days in advance but due to lots of things going on I was wondering if I could freeze the purée to finish with marshmallows and oven on the big day?? Thanks!
Hi, Isabel! Yes, I think it would be just fine to freeze the puree! Be sure to take it out of the freezer at least the day before to give it time to thaw. If you see any liquid separation, just beat it again with a spoon or a hand mixer until combined. Enjoy!
There are two Step 4 instructions. If you’re making this ahead of time, I assume you’re making it through the first step 4 “Mash the potatoes” and then putting it in a casserole dish to keep it in the fridge until you are ready to cook it. Is that correct?
Hi, Emily! Woops! There shouldn’t be two Step 4’s — that’s a typo! Prepare the casserole through making the puree and transferring it to the casserole dish. At that point, refrigerate it (without marshmallows) and bake the casserole when you’re ready. Enjoy!
Thank God I read this … I am making it the night before and I had the final product without the marshmallows in the oven for 10 minutes before I read that I wasn’t supposed to cook it at all tonight. . I would have hated to have had to start over lol.
Phew! Glad you caught that!
I make my sweet potatoes with raisins, brown sugar , finely chopped pecans, and then topped with miniature marshmallows. I place it back in the oven for 5-7 minutes, just long enough to brown them. My mother in law loves them and eats them cold from the refrigerator for breakfast!
