Sweet Potato Marshmallow Pie

Certainly not my healthiest recipe but something a bit fun for those choosing to have a little sugar now and then!

I made this dish as a random idea/experiment for Christmas dinner this year and it turned out surprisingly well. It looks impressive when cooked, golden-brown and crisp on the outside, gooey and oozing on the inside!

What you will need:

1 bag of marshmallows

2 sweet potatoes

1 tsp cinnamon

 

To make this dish couldn’t be easier. Simply steam the sweet potatoes until soft to prick with a fork, then mash and add the cinnamon.

Transfer mashed potatoes into the baking dish you plan to use and spread evenly.

Cover the potato with marshmallows as shown below.

Pop in the oven at 200.C and bake until golden brown and crisp on top (approx. 20mins).

I love how the marhsmallows all melt together to give a perfect swollen top to the pie! We ate this dish as an unusual sweet-savoury dish with our main meal and it strangely worked but it would also work well as a dessert/sweet option.
