Mouthwatering Mondays {Recipe Linkup}

Today I am linking up with a group of ladies for Mouthwatering Mondays.  Today they are featuring Favorite BBQ/ Picnic Recipes. 

Lately I have loved foods that I have never touched before, and Sweet Potatoes are one of them. This past week we had BBQ sliders and I knew I wanted to pair them up with mouthwatering sweet potatoes.
I found this recipe and saw that it was filled with creamy goodness and had to try it out on my

What You'll Need:
 (Serves 6)
* 4 cups sweet potato; cooked and cubed
* 1/2 cup white sugar
*2 eggs, beaten
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 4 tablespoons butter, softened
* 1/2 cup milk
* 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
* 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
* 1/2 cup chopped pecans (I omitted this)
* 1/2- 1 cup small marsh mellows


1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Put sweet potatoes in a medium saucepan with water to cover. Cook over medium high heat until tender; drain and mash.
2. In a large bowl, mix together the sweet potatoes, white sugar, eggs, salt, butter, milk and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth. Transfer to a 9x13 inch baking dish.

3. In medium bowl, mix the brown sugar and flour. Cut in the butter until the mixture is coarse. Stir in the pecans. Sprinkle the mixture over the sweet potato mixture.

4. Bake in the preheated oven 30 minutes, or until the topping is lightly brown.
5. Take out of oven and add marsh mellows over top and place back in oven on BROIL until marsh mellows are golden brown.

Not only is this dish a must for summer BBQ's put it is a staple during Holiday dinners.  I have found that this is a side dish that has staple ingredients and is quick to put together. 
This recipe serves 6 but I had no left over after serving 4 people.  My motto is, "If the Hubs likes it, save the recipe and cook it weekly!"

  3. Thanks for linking up! That looks amazing! I'm down with anything that has marshmallow!

  4. When we were on vacation, I had sweet potatoes with a sort of cinnamon sugar dip. It was a cool twist on this really classic (and yummy) recipe.

    1. That's sounds yummy Lisa. Recently, I had someone tell me to mix up Marsh mellow fluff and cinnamon with it. Now that would be delish!
