“I've tried many recipes but keep coming back to this one! It can be prepared in advance & thrown in the oven while you do other things.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash potatoes, peel & cut into 1/2 inch slices.
  2. Cook in boiling water until tender, about 10 minutes.
  3. Drain well, place into a 2 quart casserole dish & mash.
  4. Add brown sugar, margarine & salt; continue mashing until no lumps remain.
  5. Mix in orange juice & pineapple & set aside.
  6. Place first 5 topping ingredients into a medium sized pot, over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the margarine is melted.
  7. Add the marshmallows & toss to coat.
  8. Top the sweet potatoes with the marshmallow mixture & sprinkle with the pecans.
  9. Bake, uncovered, in a preheated 350F oven until the potatoes are heated through & the marshmallows are melted, 30- 45 minutes.
  10. I sometimes leave it longer to make the topping almost become like candy!
