Ode to Thanksgiving: Sweet Potato Casserole with Marshmallows

This recipe is a classic in my home, and Thanksgiving would not be the same without it.  Comfort food at its best.

This version is a variation from a recipe.

2 cans yams (aka sweet potatoes!)
1 tbsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. cinnamon to taste
1/4 - 1 tsp. nutmeg to taste
1/4 c. orange juice to taste
Marshmallows (lg. or miniature)
Cinnamon sugar (opt.)

Drain yams and add to medium bowl.  Mash and add vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon and juice.  Spray or grease lightly Pyrex or Corning dish. Put a layer of potatoes, layer of marshmallows until filled. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar for added flavor. Bake about 350 degrees until HOT. Remove from oven and put marshmallows on top. Place again in oven to brown lightly. Serves 10 to 12.
