Sweet Potato Casserole graces my family table every fall. With it's rich, buttery taste and crunchy topping, sweet potato casserole makes for a perfect side dish, but is sweet enough to serve as a dessert.
Preheat oven to 350º F. Scrub sweet potatoes and boil or bake in the oven until tender.
Cool, peel and mash the sweet potatoes. Stir in granulated sugar, butter, vanilla, milk and eggs, mix well. Pour mixture into a 9x13 casserole dish or individual dishes for serving.

Cook for 30 minutes until topping has browned. If using mini marshmallows, add them the final 10 minutes of baking. Remove from oven and serve.
