Combine sugar, margarine, cinnamon, and salt in thick skillet and cook over moderate heat stirring constantly until mixture blends and bubbles. Arrange sweet potatoes in skillet, cover and cook 10 minutes over low heat until potatoes are hot. Uncover. Cook about 5 minutes longer, basting frequently until potatoes are glazed.

Add marshmallows to top and replace cover until they’re melted. (Or place all into an oven dish and then add marshmallows and brown for a few seconds under the broiler until golden – but watch them constantly or you’ll have a fire!)

Great for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Nothing like sweet potatoes to dress up any holiday meal. I have been making these as long as I can remember. In the North, we just roasted sweet potatoes in their jackets and served them whole. In the South, I dress them up a bit such as the recipe above.
