Okay, so apparently Chardonnay and cooking sometimes just don’t mix. I am only human guys, and while cooking my sweet potato decadent dish, I forgot about it and most my Marshmallows melted. I was only able to salvage a few bites of the gooey topping so just a warning to keep you eye on it as it bakes and follow the time on the recipe above. Do not under any circumstances be distracted by cute puppies or pour yourself a second glass of wine until this is done, you’ll thank me later.

Nonetheless, even though I royally messed this up on the visual and textural front, the flavor was all there and it was amazing. It resembles a big bowl of candy with sweet potatoes that soak with the melting of the Marshmallows and the pieces of bacon get sucked into the crevices made as they melt. When paired with spicy sides and a meat, makes for a perfect Thanksgiving dinner.
