Bring a large pot of water to a boil.

Add quartered potatoes and boil until slightly underdone, about 15 minutes.

Drain and let cool.
Preheat oven to  400 degrees F (200 degrees C) now.

Don’t fret about peeling them, After par-boiling them the skins will easily pull off. See.

If you are peeling the sweet potatoes and you happen to drop one. The 5 second rule does not apply if your cat runs over, licks the potato and proceeds to bat it around the kitchen floor.
This is a good lesson on letting things go & mopping kitchen floors.

In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine margarine, brown sugar, 2 cups marshmallows, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Cook, stirring occasionally, until marshmallows are melted.

Stir potatoes into marshmallow sauce.
While stirring mash about half of the potatoes, and break the others into bite-sized chunks.

Transfer to greased baking dish.
Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.

Remove from oven and cover top evenly with remaining marshmallows.

Return to oven and bake until marshmallows are golden brown.
