Ingredients

For the casserole

  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes cleaned
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • cooking spray

For the topping

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a sheet pan with foil and coat with cooking spray. Prick the potatoes with a fork and place them on the pan.
  • Bake the potatoes until tender, 45 minutes to an hour.
  • When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut them open, scoop out the insides and place the potatoes in a large bowl.
  • Add the 4 tablespoons of butter, milk, brown sugar, maple syrup, cinnamon, egg and vanilla to the bowl.
  • Use a potato masher or hand mixer to mash or beat the potatoes until mostly smooth.
  • Grease a 9 inch square pan or 2 quart baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Spread the sweet potato mixture evenly in the pan.
  • In another bowl, mix together the brown sugar, flour, melted butter and pecans until crumbly. Sprinkle the crumb topping over the sweet potatoes.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until topping has lightly browned.
  • Remove from oven, sprinkle the marshmallows over the top then return to the oven.
  • Bake for an additional 3-5 or until marshmallows are just melted.
  • Serve immediately.
