So I didn't really know what I was doing here, shock of all shocks. I had never made a sweet potato casserole, I've only had my moms and know what it should look and taste like. I sort of learned while I went, hence, no ingredients shot. I also didn't look up any recipe for guidance, oops. Lucky for you, I figured it out and it came out delicious!
My husband's friend Rick and his lovely wife, Jenny, came over to drop off their amazing German Shepherd, Ralph, for the weekend (dog sitting adventure post to follow!). Rick saw the potatoes and marshmallows on the counter and couldn't possibly figure out what I was making. I think I scared him a little bit. I should mention he is also from Ireland. Hopefully this post will restore his faith in American cooking.
After throwing in a little of this and a little of that, I ended up with these ingredients:
Dark Brown Sugar
I started by peeling two large sweet potatoes. This made 3 hefty servings.
Anyway, I threw a stick of cinnamon in at the end, after it had been mashed, and stirred it around. This is still a savory dish as far as I'm concerned, so I don't want it tasting like an apple pie. If you wanted a stronger cinnamon flavor, prehaps you could put the cinnamon stick in as the potatoes are boiling? Huh. That's an interesting thought.
