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.
Special thanks to Emily Jacobs of Sage Recipes for helping us test this recipe.
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.
