Sweet Potato Casserole

One of our holiday side dishes. This Thanksgiving we had a scare, in the midst of getting everything on the table, I forgot I had stuck this back in the oven with the marshmallows on top. All of a sudden I smelled smoke, opened the oven, and the whole top of marshmallows started on fire!!! Luckily, my husband was able to blow it out, but that was the first time THAT ever happened!!! So, keep an eye on it once you put those marshmallows on top!!!

2 large cans sweet potatoes

1/2 cup oatmeal

1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 bag fresh cranberries

1/4 cup butter or margarine


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Drain sweet potatoes and put in a 2 1/2 quart casserole. In small bowl mix, flour, oatmeal and brown sugar. Pour this and the cranberries over the potatoes and mix together carefully.  Dot with margarine. Bake for about 35 to 40 minutes. Cover with marshmallows and bake until marshmallows are browned, about 10 minutes.
