  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add potatoes and boil until slightly underdone, about 15 minutes; drain and peel when cool enough to handle.

  • While potatoes are cooling, combine 2 cups marshmallows, margarine, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large saucepan over medium heat; cook, stirring occasionally, until marshmallows are melted.

  • Stir potatoes into marshmallow sauce, mashing about half of the potatoes and breaking the other half into bite-sized chunks. Transfer into the prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Sprinkle remaining 1 cup marshmallows evenly over top and continue to bake until marshmallows are slightly toasted and golden brown, about 5 minutes.
