In conversation about her youth, my elderly friend told me that her mother for Thanksgiving made sweet potato patties and she thinks (can't remember with certainty) that there were marshmallows inside.
My friend grew up in Alabama in the thirties and forties.
Has anyone ever heard of this?
Paula Deen's website has a recipe for Inside Out Sweet Potatoes. I would like to know if this would be in the ballpark, if anyone has experience with this type of preparation.
Thanks for your help!
