Sweet potatoes are one of my very favorite veggies!

This recipe turns them into a very decadent breakfast item or dessert–you can’t go wrong!

My work buddies said it tasted just like Thanksgiving 🙂

Ingredients

  • 2 medium sized sweet potatoes, cooked and peeled or about 2 cups
  • 4 TBSP butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 TBSP heavy whipping cream
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cans crescent rolls
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • Topping:
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 TBSP heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Method

Step 1

Bake sweet potatoes until tender, let cool and peel.

Step 2

Place cooked potatoes in a large mixing bowl and add butter, brown sugar, vanilla extract, nutmeg, cinnamon, cream and egg; mix until well combined.

Step 3

Place one can of the crescent rolls in a 9 x 13 baking dish but do not spray it with nonstick spray. Pinch edges together to make a bottom crust.

Step 4

Spread the sweet potatoes over the rolls.

Step 5

Sprinkle on the 2 cups of miniature marshmallows and the chopped nuts.

Step 6

Cut the cream cheese up in small pieces and place on top of all the ingredients.

Step 7

Unroll the second can of crescent rolls and pinch together to make the top crust. Place on top of the other the ingredients.

Step 8

Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes until crescent rolls are brown on top. Remove from oven and let cool.

Step 9

Whisk together the topping ingredients and drizzle over rolls.

Putting it all together:

 Take the 1 package of crescent rolls and mush them together in the bottom of your 9 x 13 pan..

you will not have to spray it with nonstick spray because the crescent rolls will be greasy enough…for lack of a better explanation!

Mix the potatoes, butter, vanilla, egg and flavoring and spread over the crescent layer…

You will want to eat this mixture right out of the bowl…I promise…

Now pour on the marshmallows and cut up cream cheese….

Then sprinkle on the pecans…

though next time, I think I will save the pecans to sprinkle on the top instead…

On your cutting board, mush together the next roll of crescents to form a top crust…

it will not look perfect or even pretty…but that’s ok!

Bake on 350 degrees for 30 minutes…

It will be beautiful and brown like this!
