This sweet potato casserole is the perfect size for a family of four. The sweet potatoes are cooked and then mashed with brown sugar, honey, and butter. The mashed sweet potatoes are topped with marshmallows and baked to perfection. Feel free to add more marshmallows to the topping.

If you don't have honey, use maple syrup or some extra brown sugar. Scale the recipe up for a larger family or holiday meal.
