Yam and Marshmallow Casserole

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Meghan lt3

A sweet side dish which goes excellent with turkey dinner. A fairly quick dish to prepare and bake, and really tasty. You can substitute the yam for a sweet potato.

I tried this for halloween. It was probably a bit too sweet as a side dish for my liking, but it's not really a dessert either. Thanks for an interesting idea though, and it was worth a try!
