Preparation

Step 1

1. Wash potatoes (skin on) and poke a few holes in them. Cover potato with Crisco or oil. Wrap in foil and cook potatoes in oven at 375 F for about 1 to 1 ½ hours or until very soft. I usually turn off the oven and let them sit in there until it cools down.
2. In large bowl, mash sweet potatoes. Mix together with sugar, eggs, ¾ cup margarine, evaporated milk, nutmeg, cinnamon, marshmallows, and coconut (if desired). Scoop the mixture into a greased 9x13 baking dish.
3. Bake 20 minutes in the preheated oven.
4. In a small bowl, mix the crushed cornflakes, brown sugar, pecans, and remaining ¾ cup margarine. Spread the topping over the baked casserole.
5. Return the casserole to the 400 degree F oven and bake an additional 10 minutes.
