Aunt Elaine’s Holiday Sweet Potatoes

Aunt Elaine’s Holiday Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes, boiled in skins
1/2 stick margarine
1 T. to 1/2 C. brown sugar, to taste
Miniature marshmallows

Boil potatoes in skin until done. (Note: Be sure to pick out sweet potatoes of similar size for even cooking. Don’t poke potatoes. Only check them when you’re pretty sure they’re done – if you poke them too many times, can make them icky.) Drain and hold under cold water to peel. Mash them and add butter and brown sugar. Bake at 350º until bubbling around edges. Add marshmallows about 5 to 10 minutes before serving. Can do the day ahead.
