Sweet Potatoes

I love traditional sweet potatoes with the mini marshmallows on top. However, most of my family does not care for them so I made a rather small batch for just me and my father-in-law. This was kind of made up on the spot, but it was pretty good.

Sweet Potatoes
2 regular sized cans of sweet potatoes or 1 large can
1-2 Tbs. brown sugar
1-2 Tbs. butter broken or cup into small pieces
salt and pepper
3/4-1 cup mini marshmallows

Drain off most of the liquid from the sweet potatoes. Dump them in a small casserole dish and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Then sprinkle brown sugar and butter on top. Cook in microwave for about 5 minutes until warm. Top with marshmallows and bake in oven at 350 for 5-10 minutes until marshmallows are melted and toasty. Or bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes then top with marshmallows and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes.
