Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bake, peel, and mash the sweet potatoes with a potato masher. To get four cups, its about 3 1/2-4 pounds of sweet potato.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together the potatoes (cooled until just warm), sugar, milk, margarine, orange juice, vanilla, salt, orange zest, and spices and beat until completely smooth. Add more or less evaporated milk until desired consistency has been reached.
  3. Spoon the mixture into a lightly greased casserole dish and refrigerate overnight.
  4. The next day, bring sweet potato dish to room temperature, and bake (covered with a clear lid) for 35 to 45 minutes.
  5. In the last 5 minute of baking, spread an even layer of marshmallows over top of the casserole.
  6. WATCH CAREFULLY! Broil (uncovered) until the marshmallows are just turning a darker brown and they are starting to puff.
  7. SERVE!
