Creamy Sweet Potatoes

Recipe Submitted by Appliejuice ..|.. Category: Vegetables

This is what we serve at every Thanksgiving and Christmas. My family calls this "Plops" because of the large marshmallows that are melted on top.


  • 1 large can of sweet potatoes
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup soft butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • Dash of salt
  • Large or small marshmallows


In a large bowl, mash sweet potatoes. Add eggs, orange juice, butter, sugar, vanilla, nutmeg, and salt; mix well. Transfer to a greased 9" baking dish. Bake at 350 for 35 to 40 minutes. Top with marshmallows; return to oven until they just begin to puff and melt; about 5 to 10 minutes.
