Sweet Potato Casserole

I made this for the annual theatre dept. thanksgiving (and actually,this was the first time I had actually gone...just in time, right?). Anyways, I forgot to take a picture...but everyone ate it and loved it, so just trust that it looked awesome.

2 cans cooked yams
1/2 c. dark brown sugar
1/2 c. heavy whipping cream
1/2 c. melted butter (unsalted, PLEASE!)
1 tbsp. cinnamon
1 tbsp. cloves
3 c. mini marshmallows
2 eggs, beaten
Pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 400 F

Mash the yams until the consistency of smashed potatoes (or go ahead and whip them!). Mix in the cream, butter (cooled, so you don't scramble the eggs), beaten eggs, cinnamon, cloves, and salt. Spoon into a baking pan and cover with marshmallows. Cook on the bottom rack for 30 minutes, then move to the top rack (to toast the marshmallows).

Happy Thanksgiving!
