Sweet Potato Casserole
A Savory Side Dish for Turkey Day
The Marshmallow-topped treat is no stranger to the Thanksgiving table. If you're looking for a new take on the sweet treat, try this recipe from Saveur.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Soak raisins in sherry until soft, about 30 minutes. Drain raisins and transfer to a large bowl, discarding sherry.
Meanwhile, place sweet potatoes in a roasting pan and bake until tender, about 40 minutes. Allow potatoes to cool, then peel, puree with a food processor or food mill, and add to raisins. Add brown sugar, butter, orange juice, orange zest, and pumpkin spice and mix well. Fold in pecans and pineapple and transfer to an 8-inch baking dish.
Bake casserole for 20 minutes then cover with marshmallows and bake until marshmallows are golden, about 5 minutes more.
