Sweet Potato Casserole

This recipe is also from Alisha.

*Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

4-5 sweet potatoes (cooked and peeled) OR 1 40-oz can sweet potatoes (I use the canned yams)
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg

Streusel Topping:
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 cup quick oats
Pinch of cinnamon
Miniature marshmallows (as needed)

Mash the sweet potatoes. Add 1/3 cup butter, milk, vanilla and egg. Mix well and transfer into a well greased 9 x 13 baking dish. Prepare the streusel mixture in a plastic bag by mix all of the ingredients together until combined leaving out the marshmallows.
On top of the casserole, alternate the streusel mixture with the miniature marshmallows, making diagonal rows with each. Bake at 350 degrees until the streusel and the marshmallows are golden brown, approximately 30 - 45 minutes.

*If you prefer your sweet potato mixture to be sweeter, you can add ½ to 1 cup of sugar to the potato mixture, along with the butter, milk, vanilla and egg.

**If you are planning on feeding several, you may want to make 2 of these. Everyone will want seconds!
