Sweet Potato Casserole is the perfect holiday side dish. Savory and sweet combine in such a unique way! Creamy mashed sweet potatoes with brown sugar, topped with a homemade marshmallow meringue!
Pour mixture into a greased 11x7 casserole dish.
Transfer casserole dish to the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until sweet potatoes are set. While sweet potatoes are baking, prepare the marshmallow meringue.
With an electric mixer, beat the mixture until smooth and soft peaks form (about 5-6 minutes). If peaks do not form after 6 minutes, slowly add in 1 teaspoon of sugar at a time, continue mixing and repeat until it begins to firm up.
Add in the remaining 1 teaspoon of vanilla.
Once the sweet potatoes have baked, change the oven temperature from 375° F to Broil.
Carefully top the cooked sweet potatoes with the marshmallow meringue in an even layer (the pan will be hot).
Broil until marshmallow meringue is browned (30 seconds to 2 minutes). The meringue should be golden brown.
