1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Dash salt
1 cup miniature marshmallows


In a large bowl, mash sweet potatoes. Add eggs, orange juice, butter, sugar, vanilla, nutmeg and salt; mix well. Transfer to a greased 3-qt. baking dish.
Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until set. Top with marshmallows; return to oven until they just begin to puff and melt, about 5-10 minutes. Yield: 10-12 servings.
