A holiday sweet potato casserole with marshmallow topping, or top with grated orange zest. This is an excellent recipe for holiday dinners.

What You'll Need

  • 6 large sweet potatoes (baked, peeled, and mashed)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup good bourbon
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 package miniature marshmallows

How to Make It

  1. Mix all ingredients well; beat well, until light and fluffy. If needed add a little more milk.
  2. Spoon sweet potato mixture into a buttered casserole dish; bake at 350° until set, about 20 to 30 minutes.
  3. Garnish with marshmallows and bake until marshmallows melt and just begin to brown.
  4. If desired, garnish with finely grated orange zest instead of marshmallows, and skip the final baking time.
