  • 8 tbsp unsalted butter, cut into chunks
  • 5 lbs sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper


  • 4 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 pinch cumin


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Melt butter in a large dutch oven over medium heat.
  • Add the sweet potatoes brown sugar, water, salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer, then cover and reduce heat to medium low.
  • Cook, stirring often, until the sweet potatoes are tender, about 45-60 minutes.
  • When potatoes are tender, remove the lid and bring the sauce to a rapid simmer over medium high heat.
  • Continue to simmer until the brown sugar mixture has reduced to a glaze, about 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, mix together all the remaining ingredients in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • Pour the potato mixture into a 9×13 baking dish.
  • Spread the topping over the potatoes and bake until marshmallows are golden brown, about 10-15 minutes.
