Mom's Sweet Potatos

These have been a family tradition for as long as I can remember. This is how we always served Sweet Potatos on Thanksgiving in my "Texas Family". They are easy to make and taste almost like dessert! :)

Mom's Sweet Potatos

6 large sweet potatoes (peeled and sliced)
One mini-can Evaporated Milk
1/2 cup (give or take) brown sugar
Cinnamon (to taste)
Cloves (to taste)
3 Tbsp Butter
Mini-Marshmallows (or Large Marshmallows cut in half)

In a large pot, boil potatos until soft enough to mash. Drain, and return to pot. Add milk, sugar, spices and 2 Tbsp butter, mash to desired consistency (I like to leave a little bit of texture in there). Preheat oven to 350. Spread mixture into baking dish. Top with a good layer of marshmallows (leave a little room around the edge for expansion - unless you want to clean blackened marshmallow from the bottom of your oven). Bake until Marshmallows are golden brown and serve warm. Delicious!!!

Grab a spoon and mash some potatos!
