For the Casserole and Topping

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and cook the potatoes for 1 hour to soften. (If you are on a time crunch then you can toss them in the microwave for about 10-12 minutes). Before cooking them, pierce them with a fork a few times.
  2. Allow them to cool and then peel. You could also cut in half and scoop out the "meat" if you have no way to peel.
  3. Set the oven to 350 degrees. Get the dish that you plan to serve with and coat it with non-stick cooking spray.
  4. Mash the potatoes a little and putt into a bowl. Then add softened butter, white sugar, milk, vanilla and egg.
  5. Mix together until blended. Electric mixers work well on low.
  6. Add mixture to the baking dish you prepared and move onto the topping.
  7. Get a small bowl and add the cornflakes. Crush them until they are fairly fine.
  8. Add the chopped pecans and brown sugar and mix together until evenly blended.
  9. Add a thin layer of topping all across the casserole.
  10. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes.
  11. Take out and add marshmallows to the top of the casserole and put back in the oven for about 5 minutes.
  12. ENJOY!
