Popeyes Sweet Potato Casserole
- 2 Popeye's Georgian Pecan Pies
- 1 Tablespoon fresh orange juice
- 2 cans sweet potato purée
- 1/2 bag marshmallows
- Salt and pepper, to taste
Few would guess that there was fast food included in this casserole recipe, but Popeyes’ signature pecan pie adds a unique flavor unlike any we’ve tried before.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Cut open each pie and carefully separate the crust, filling, and pecans from each other. In a 9-by-13-inch baking dish, add the the filling to the mashed sweet potatoes with the orange juice and give it a good stir. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
In a food processor, pulse the pie shells and pecans 2-3 times until it is in medium to small chunks. Mix together with the marshmallows and top the sweet potato filling with it. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes until hot and the marshmallows are golden brown.
