Thanksgiving is just a few days away and I have a few more recipes to share before it gets here.

As you call, I’ve already shared my hasselback maple pecan sweet potatoes. And while I really love that recipe, I thought it might be fun to play around with another version.

I have to confess, marshmallow sweet potato casserole is not a dish I’ve ever made. But I do really like how these came out. The hasselback sweet potatoes are stuffed with mini marshmallows that melt in the oven for a gooey finish. I didn’t add too much else because I didn’t want these overly sweet.

  • sweet potatoes thoroughly washed you want to choose ones that are long and straight
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • about 60 mini marshmallows


  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a large baking sheet with foil.
  • To cut sweet potatoes, use a sharp knife and starting from one end of the sweet potato, slice slits about 1/4 inch wide, but make sure you do not cut all the way through. Cut about 3/4 of the way down for each slice. Repeat with all sweet potatoes.
  • Brush tops and sides of sweet potatoes with olive oil. Place onto prepared baking sheet. Bake for about 40 minutes or until sweet potatoes are tender.
  • Remove from oven and reduce temperature to 375°F. Allow sweet potatoes to cool enough to be touched.
  • Stuff each sweet potato with about 15 mini marshmallows (about 10 inside and 5 on top). For the marshmallows being stuffed inside, rip them in half and then push them in between the slits of the sweet potato. You don't need to insert a marshmallow piece in between every slit. I stuffed mine in between every other slit.
  • Place back into the oven and cook for about 10 minutes until the marshmallows stuffed inside are melted and the ones on top are toasted. Serve warm.
