I give this 5 stars! This is saying alot since I am NOT a sweet potato fan. I made this to go along with Brown Sugar Glaze for Ham and we loved the flavor of the two of them together. I don't ususally eat sweet potatoes, but this recipe has converted me. These were delicious. Thank you Nanita for sharing this recipe with us, I will be making these often.

I made this for Christmas dinner and it was a hit! Everyone loved it but me but I'm a spicy sweet potato fry kinda gal. The rest of the famiy said they were the best sweet potato or yam dish I have made and I try them a different way every year. They all said stick with this one.

EXCELLENT!!!!! So easy and mega tasty! Everyone loved it.... it was the only dish from Christmas dinner that I had to re-make for our leftover dinner the next night! I too, didn't make the middle layer, as we don't like this dish too sweet either! I prepared this right in the baking dish minutes before cooking .... it was fresh out of the oven and place directly on the table. YUM!!!! Thanks Nanita!

This was delicious! I made it for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it. I goofed and used a 29oz can of sweet potatoes thinking I was supposed to have 30oz. The only thing I changed was the amount of marshmallows. I didnt put the middle layer in because I thought it would be too sweet and it came out perfect! The next time I used the 40oz can of sweet potatoes and it came out good also but I almost think I prefer the smaller can. I love how the marshmallows puff up and get really chewy. My dh is away for 3 weeks so last night I made this just for myself, comfort food. Awesome dish!

I loved it. I am the only one that likes sweet potatoes but I still doubled this recipe and made it just for me. So good. I did forget the egg, just bad memory but didn't miss it. This is my new way to make sweet potatoes and will be making for Christmas dinner with family since more people will eat. Great leftovers too!!! Thank you

Great recipe! I made it for Thanksgiving and we all enjoyed it. I used an extra can of yams (the smaller one) and didn't mash them. I also omitted the egg. A true keeper! Thanks for sharing.

This was really yummy! I made it for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it. I substituted canola oil for butter because my daughter is allergic to dairy products and it worked fine. Thanks!

Very delicious! I made it for Christmas dinner at my fiance's mom's house- she had never tried it (yams) before, and she loved it! I didn't put in as many marshmallows though. :-) Thank you.

I have many sweet potato casserole recipes that I have gathered through the years but decided to use this one this year because of the ease of preparation. Neither I nor any of the 11 others sharing it were disappointed. I made it exactly as the recipe stated, using the can of Bruce's yams called for in the recipe. I did put all the ingredients (except marshmallows) in my food processor in order to have a smooth consistency, but otherwise followed everything exactly, including the two layers of marshmallows. It was delicious and will made again, per request of all, for our Christmas dinner. Thanks Nanita for a great recipe, and thanks 'Zaar for making Nanita the chef for the day today--it made it so easy for me to find this recipe again without having to go through the hundreds of casseroles with pecan strudel toppings!
