To create this years Sweet Potato Casserole I decided to use the InstaPot for the hard part - cooking the sweet potatoes. This way I didn't have to watch over a boiling pot.They turned out fantastic, but a bit too sweet for my liking (completely my fault btw) so I know what to do to adjust them. First I took this recipe from the One Happy Housewife Blog
- Let the casserole cool for 10-15 minutes after taking it out of the oven.
- Once cooled, cover the top of the casserole with a layer of marshmallows and then add cherries throughout.
- Turn the oven to the Low Broil setting. Place the baking dish back into the oven on the middle rack and broil for approximately 3-5 minutes.
- Keep a constant eye on the casserole! The marshmallows will brown quickly and a little distraction could lead to burned marshmallows!
My adjustments.... To make it a bit healthier I substituted Brown Sugar for Splenda Brown Sugar but I forgot to adjust the measurements and so it was very sweet. I think next time I would only use 1 1/2 cups of the Splenda Brown Sugar. I also did not use cherries or the walnuts. That really made no difference in the outcome and I doubt I will ever add them back into it.
