This is a fresh no-oven twist on the classic sweet potato casserole.


2 lb. sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
ΒΌ cup cream or milk
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons brown sugar (opt.)
Marshmallows (opt.)


1) Peel sweet potatoes and chop into 1-inch chunks. Cook in lightly salted until the sweet potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes.

2) Drain sweet potatoes and return to the pan. Add butter, milk (or cream) and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mash until smooth. If potatoes are dry, you might need to add more milk.

You can serve these as-is while warm.

(optional) Transfer sweet potatoes to a casserole dish and top with brown sugar and marshmallows. Use a kitchen torch to lightly toast marshmallows!
