  • 3 pounds Sweet potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons Butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 cup Orange juice
  • 9 ounces Crushed pineapple drained
  • 2.5 cups Mini marshmallows more if you like!


  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add your unpeeled, uncut sweet potatoes. Cook at a steady boil for approximately 30-40 minutes, or until a fork can easily piece the potato all the way to the middle.
  • Once the potatoes are cooked drain the water and run the potatoes under cool water until they are cool enough to handle.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Cut potatoes in half and gently press on the end of the potato to push it out of the skin. You can also cut a slit in the side of the potato and just peel off the skin.
  • Place the peeled sweet potatoes in a large bowl and add the butter, salt, and orange juice. Beat with a hand mixer until fluffy.
  • Gently fold the pineapple into the sweet potatoes until well mixed.
  • Scoop the potato mixture into a greased 9x13 inch pan.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Stop and remove casserole from the oven and add a single layer of mini marshmallows. Place back in the oven and continue to bake until the marshmallows are lightly browned, approximately 5-10 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and serve.
