Expert Tips

Want a mashed sweet potato casserole instead? Before topping with marshmallows, mash, crush or smash potatoes using potato masher, or beat with electric mixer on low speed until well blended. Do not overmix. Continue with recipe as directed.

If you like the toasty marshmallow look of the traditional casserole, just pour the cooked mixture into greased or sprayed 13x9-inch ovenproof casserole, top with marshmallows and broil 6 inches from heat 30 seconds to 1 minute or until marshmallows just begin to brown.
