  • Chef notes

    This recipe takes sweet potatoes to another level. The contrasting textures of the creamy potatoes and crunchy topping make it so delicious.

    Technique tip: Creating a crumble with dry ingredients and butter.

    Swap option: You can add pecans instead of oats or walnuts even. This recipe can easily be doubled as well.

    Preparation

    For the sweet potatoes:

    1.

    Fill a large pot with sweet potatoes and water about an inch higher than potatoes. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cook until fork tender, about 15-20 minutes. Completely drain potatoes and place back into the pot.

    2.

    Using a hand mixer (or a hand masher), blend potatoes until mostly smooth. Next add butter, sugar, cream, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg and mix until well combined and potatoes are smooth.

    3.

    Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8- by 8-inch casserole dish.

    4.

    Spoon mashed potatoes into dish and smooth with a spatula.

    For the crumble topping:

    1.

    Whisk together flour, sugar, oats, cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Melt butter in a microwave safe bowl. Add melted butter to dry ingredients and mix with a fork to create crumbs.

    2.

    Add marshmallows to top of mashed sweet potatoes then sprinkle with crumble topping.

    3.

    Bake for 20-25 minutes or until crumble is crisp and marshmallows are golden brown. You can also broil marshmallows a bit if you want them to have more a torched look.
