Sweet Potato Casserole


The only way to eat a sweet potato is baked with gobs of butter and a heaping spoon of brown sugar.  If that’s not your thing and you still have sweet potatoes left over from Thanksgiving, give this dish a try.


  • 4 medium sweet potatoes cooked and mashed (Canned potatoes can be used, but why?)
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup belted butter
  • ¼ cup pineapple juice
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon

Topping #1:

  • 1 cup crushed Ritz crackers or your favorite buttery cracker
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup melted butter

Topping #2:

2 cups mini marshmallows


Preheat Oven to 350⁰. 

Mix your ingredients in a large bowl.  Transfer to an 8” or 9” baking dish.  If using topping one, mix ingredients together and sprinkle over potato mixture.  Bake uncovered until bubble (160⁰) for about 25 minutes.

If using Topping #2 do not sprinkle with marshmallows until the end.  Put back in the oven until marshmallows melt and brown.

Cindy A. Rose began writing for the Tentacle in 2011 trying to raise awareness over things happening within Frederick County Public Schools. She began keeping a close watch on FCPS when she learned there were not enough air conditioned buses for special needs children during the hot Maryland summers. The Tentacle offered her a place to share her concerns with her community when local newspapers didn’t always. Cindy had the opportunity to buy the Tentacle from creator/owner John W. Ashbury in 2019, so she did. She believed then, as she believes now, our communities, friends and neighbors have important things to say that needs to be shared with those living around them. Large corporate news companies don’t always share in those passions and concerns. The Tentacle is a local news, commentary and community website run by citizens, for citizens. Its success depends on your participation.
