Recently, we were asked how to get kids to eat sweet potatoes.
Well, with MARSHMALLOWS, of course!
No, actually my kids love sweet potatoes no matter what.
But a sweet element certainly does help.
And butter. Don’t forget dairy-free butter!
My kids love eating baked sweet potatoes with butter, cinnamon, and marshmallows.
And every Thanksgiving, we make a fabulous sweet potato casserole that the whole extended family loves.
This recipe can also be made in the oven or in a slow cooker.
We often decide which to use based on how many other family members are going to need the oven when we gather for Thanksgiving.
And really, the slow cooker is the best bet, lol. Gotta save oven room for heating the sweet rolls, ya know!
This is one of those Thanksgiving dishes that everyone wants leftovers of.
So actually, we often double this recipe.
When we double the recipe, we do a layer of brown sugar between two layers of sweet potatoes and top with more brown sugar and marshmallows.
See the sweet potato recipe below!

SWEET POTATO CASSEROLE INGREDIENTS
5 large sweet potatoes
1/4 cup dairy-free butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
Pinch of ground cinnamon
1/2 bag of mini marshmallows
HOW TO MAKE SWEET POTATO CASSEROLE
Bake or boil the sweet potatoes until cooked and soft.
Remove the peels from the sweet potatoes.
Mix together the peeled sweet potatoes along with the dairy-free butter and cinnamon.
Spread the sweet potato mixture into a 9×13″ baking dish or into the bottom of a slow cooker.
Spread marshmallows and dollops of brown sugar on top of the mixture.
Bake 30 minutes on 350 degrees or heat in a slow cooker on low for 2-3 hours.
You may want to add some extra marshmallows to the top during the last ten minutes of cooking.
Hope your family loves this dairy-free sweet potato casserole as much as we do!
