Berry Mallow Yam Bake

June 18, 2012Teresa

Hands down, Berry Mallow Yam Bake is my husband’s favorite sweet potato recipe. It is so sweet he eats it like a dessert! It is one of those deals where I better make it at least once or twice a year during the holidays, or I’ll hear about it from him! This casserole is so succulent with the flavors of sweet potatoes, cranberries, a delicious streusal topping and then covered with marshmallows permeating every bite that the smells wafting through your house will excite your taste buds like crazy.

We love Sweet Potato Casseroles at our house and I have a ton of recipes for them. Some include Sweet Potatoes Parmesan, Sweet Potato Casserole, and a Loaded Bacon and Cheese Sweet Potato Bake. I have one stuffed with bacon and cheese, and one stuffed Tex-Mex style. I also have several recipes for sweet potato fries, soupbiscuits, cornbread and even one in enchiladas! Yes, I love sweet potatoes.

Berry Mallow Yam Bake is a delight to all who partake! It is simply amazing. I can’t say enough about the taste of this dish. It is such a comforting casserole for Thanksgiving or Christmas or other holiday get-togethers. We love this much-requested side dish and think it is the perfect accompaniment for either turkey or ham.

I received this recipe back in 1978 during the Thanksgiving holidays from my former mother-in-law, Beth. But I believe this recipe originated from Kraft and they put it on the back of their miniature marshmallow packages for quite some time. It is a  fairly simple recipe to follow but BIG on taste. Try it sometime–your family with love it.

I make this gluten free by using gluten free flour when I make it. To make this vegan simply exchange the butter for coconut oil. You can also use canned yams if you want to make it even easier. Our family has loved this recipe for decades and every time we bring it to a Christmas party it gets wolfed down in no time!

When I first posted this recipe in June 2012, I had only been blogging for a week. My photography skills were very poor and my camera even worse. I recently remade this scrumptious dish for another Christmas party, circa 2014, and decided to take some fresh pictures which more ably depict the beauty of this amazing side dish. This lovely holiday casserole is well worth the effort.

I used these ingredients. I cooked off 6 large sweet potatoes. I used a gluten free baking mix instead of regular wheat flour.

Bake an additional 5-10 minutes or until marshmallows get lightly browned. Be careful to watch your time on this as the marshmallows will scorch easily.
