  • 4 TBSP butter
  • 4 large sweet potatoes peeled and cubed
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 TBSP maple syrup, plus more for topping
  • 1 cup pecans
  • ½ cup mini marshmallows


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Add your peeled and cubed sweet potatoes to a large pot of water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then lower the heat to a simmer and cook until the potatoes are very tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain.
  • To the pot with the potatoes add your butter, milk, brown sugar, vanilla, salt and 2 tablespoons of maple syrup.
  • Mash the sweet potatoes until smooth.
  • Beat your 2 eggs and quickly stir into the potatoes until well combined.
  • Pour the mixture into a buttered 2 quart baking dish. Sprinkle the pecans all over the top evenly.
  • Drizzle maple syrup over the top of the pecans (about another 2 tablespoons).
  • Bake about 35-40 minutes and remove from oven. Top immediately with marshmallows.
  • You can place the dish back in the oven under the broiler to slightly brown the marshmallows but don’t take your eyes off them or they will burn! Enjoy!
