Brown Butter Sweet Potato Casserole is a fun version of a classic holiday side dish. Sweet potatoes are whipped together with nutty, brown butter and spices and topped with fluffy marshmallows. Baked until golden brown and bubbly this casserole is a crowd pleaser!
What is Brown Butter?
If you’ve never had brown butter before, now is the time! Brown butter is a golden concoction that comes from melting butter down and letting it bubble until perfectly golden brown. The aroma and taste are nutty and toffee-like, making the butter even more decadent! Who knew you could make butter more decadent? Well, this brown butter fits the bill perfectly!
When making brown butter, make sure to keep a close eye on it as butter can burn easily. Nobody wants burned butter, trust me. The butter will bubbly, get foamy, and then turn brown. So, swirl it around and keep an eye on it!

Sweet Potato Filling
Whipping up a quick batch of sweet potato filling is easier than you would think. Simply boil the cubed sweet potatoes until fork tender. Transfer to a bowl, add in all the fixings and get to whipping!
Getting to top an entire dish with marshmallows is like a gift in itself! When it comes to the mallow topping, I like to use a combination of both regular-sized marshmallows and mini marshmallows. I think it just gives the dish such a fun and yummy appearance! The mini marshmallows fill in all the nooks and crannies that the larger ones can’t reach. Plus, how can you go wrong with toasted marshmallows? You just can’t!
The sweet potato filling gets baked prior to adding on the marshmallow topping. So once the mallows are on, it’s go time! They will take about 10-15 minutes in the oven to get nice and toasty.
