Southern Style Sweet Potato Bake

A traditional dish that is sometimes served with a Thanksgiving meal.  This is made with canned Yams, but you can use fresh sweet potatoes, if you desire.


  • 1-29 ounce can cut yams, drained and mashed
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 Tablespoon melted butter
  • ¼ cup cream
  • 16 large marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350°.  Blend mashed yams with brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, butter and cream.  Cut 6 marshmallows in half and mix with the yams.  Turn into greased baking dish.  Top with remaining marshmallows.  Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until mixture is puffy and marshmallows are delicately browned on top.
