Whipped Sweet Potato Bake

  • Rating ****

10 servings (1/2 cup each)

This favorite stems from the Southern tradition of substituting the original Northern pumpkin dish with Southern-growing sweet potatoes, and some added Southern sweetness.


  • 3 cans (15 ounces each) sweet potatoes, drained
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 cups Jet-Puffed Miniature Marshmallows


Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Beat sweet potatoes, butter, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg with mixer until blended.

Spoon into lightly greased 1 1/2-quart casserole dish; top with marshmallows.

Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until mixture is heated through and marshmallows are lightly browned.

Tip: To make in a microwave oven, mix all ingredients except marshmallows as directed. Spoon into lightly greased microwaveable 1 1/2-quart baking dish or bowl. Microwave on high 8 to 10 minutes or until heated through, stirring after 5 minutes. Top with marshmallows; let stand 2 to 3 minutes or until marshmallows begin to melt.
