In a bowl, beat together the sweet potatoes, sour cream, egg, salt, 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, granulated sugar and 1/4 cup of the butter. Pour into a 1-quart casserole dish. Bake for 45 minutes or until done. You can mix this in advance and refrigerate until ready to bake.
Melt the remaining butter and mix it with the brown sugar.
Combine the remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, pecans and cornflakes. Stir this mixture into the butter-sugar mixture. Spread this topping over the baked potatoes, reserving a little bit.
Sprinkle mini marshmallows over the topping. Add the remaining topping over the marshmallows.
Bake for 15 minutes more or until the marshmallows are puffed and golden brown.
We always double this recipe as it usually is the favorite holiday dish. If you do double it, make it in two separate casserole dishes.
