I actually expected this recipe to turn out a lot sweeter than it did, and I was happy that it wasn’t too sweet. I even wanted more marshmallows!

Make sure to let the potatoes cool off before peeling.

I have seen some people put corn flakes on top when cooking a sweet potato casserole, so I decided to add Ritz crackers to top this scrumptious dish. I knew the Ritz crackers and the pecans would work wonderful together, and I was right because this casserole turned out lovely!

Whoever first thought of the idea to put marshmallows on top of sweet potatoes was a genius! I always end up wanting to put more. Together they are the perfect combination, and such an excellent holiday dish.

The marshmallows only need about 5 minutes to get a nice golden brown color, so be sure to watch it carefully.

Leftovers still taste great the next day with this recipe, but because there is egg in this dish by the 3rd day it doesn’t taste as fresh. This mouthwatering casserole probably won’t last that long in your fridge anyways.
