Directions:
Peel, cut into small pieces & boil. Add some salt to the water.

Mash the cooked potatoes using an electric mixer. Add in butter, vanilla, evaporated milk (to desired thickness), brown sugar, salt to taste, and spices. Mix well in mixer.

Spray deep baking dish with Pam. Place a layer of the whipped potatoes in the bottom of the dish. Cover the layer with marshmallows and sprinkle lightly with a few drops of evaporated milk and cloves. Repeat the layers ending with marshmallows on top.

Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes. If the marshmallows begin to brown too much, cover the dish lightly with aluminum foil.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I never use a recipe for this dish, therefore, the amounts listed are guesstimates. Just go by flavor.

Also you can use yams, but I prefer sweet potatoes. Some potatoes may be stringy. If when you begin to mash them, you see strings gathering on the mixer blades, be careful to exclude them from the dish.
