  • 3 Quart Baking Dish


Sweet Potato Mixture

  • 6 cups cooked, peeled, mashed sweet potatoes about 4 large or 6 medium sweet potatoes
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg optional

Pecan Streusel

  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 2 tablespoons butter softened
  • 3 tablespoons flour

Marshmallow Topping

  • 2 cups mini marshmallows


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • In a large bowl, mix together all of the ingredients for the Sweet Potato Mixture.
    Spread the mixture in a greased 3 quart baking dish ( or 9x12 baking dish, which is 3 qts )

Pecan Streusel

  • In a medium bowl, combine the ingredients for the pecan streusel together with a fork. This might take a little while to do, but keep pressing everything together with the fork until it all combines into large, flakey bits with pecans in them.

To Assemble

  • Top the sweet potato mixture with the marshmallows, then scatter the pecan mixture on top of that, careful not to break up the chunks of streusel too much as you scatter.
  • Bake for 25 min until golden brown on top.
