"This recipe was shared with me years ago when I hosted my first Thanksgiving dinner for family and friends. It's always the first dish that gets emptied completely! Hope you enjoy it as much as we have."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch casserole dish with 1 tablespoon butter.
  2. Beat sweet potato, sugar, half-and-half, eggs, and vanilla together in a bowl with an electric hand mixer; spread into prepared casserole dish. Top sweet potato mixture with marshmallows.
  3. Stir 1/3 cup melted butter, brown sugar, pecans, and flour together in a bowl; sprinkle over marshmallows.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until hot throughout, about 30 minutes.
