  • 5 red skinned sweet potatoes

  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Instructions

Scrub sweet potatoes and bake or boil until tender. Let cool, then peel and mash or purée.

Preheat oven to 350 F.

In a mixing bowl, beat together eggs, butter, pure maple syrup, vanilla extract, lemon juice, and salt.

Add sweet potatoes to egg mixture. When combined, transfer to a lightly greased 9 x 13 baking dish.

Make topping by combining brown sugar, chopped pecans, and butter. Set aside.

Bake until mixture is set and topping begins to bubble, about 30-40 minutes.

Remove from oven and top with pecan halves and marshmallows. Bake until marshmallows begin to brown, about 10 minutes.
