This recipe is very similar to sweet potato casserole, but with shredded sweet potatoes. My mom used to make it at both Thanksgiving and Christmas. She passed away when I was 8, so I when I eat this it reminds me of family holidays of long ago. I hope your family enjoys this!

  • Peel and grate the sweet potatoes and mix with melted butter in a large bowl. In a medium bowl, beat eggs with sugar until well mixed. Pour over the sweet potato mixture, and stir in evaporated milk, whole milk, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, cloves, and vanilla extract. Mix well to combine all ingredients, and spoon into the prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 60 to 70 minutes, until the sweet potatoes are tender and the top is lightly browned. Remove dish from the oven and place marshmallows on top of the sweet potatoes. Return to the oven and bake 5 to 10 minutes more, until the marshmallows are lightly browned. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

I am only giving this three stars because it didn't turn out to have the texture that I was expecting after reading the title of it. Also I found I needed a much larger than 2 quart dish. I ended up putting it into 2 casserole dishes and before I filled the second one I pureed it in the blender but still did not come up with a 'pudding' consistency. People were however impressed with the overall taste. Read More
