Baked Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Baked Stuffed Sweet Potato Recipe

Truly these delicious stuffed sweet potatoes are one of my favorite Thanksgiving and Christmas side dishes When I think about sweet potatoes, this recipe is the first thing that comes to my mind.  The topping is like candy with its crunchy, gooey, chewy texture. They are easier to fix than a classic southern sweet potato casserole, no peeling and cutting potatoes, which means we can fix them more often.  If you are serving other side dishes with these sweet potatoes, you may want to use really small potatoes.  They are filling.  These potatoes are wonderful on any holiday table.

  •  6 large or 8 medium sweet potatoes
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Wash and scrub the sweet potatoes. Prick the sweet potatoes in several places and put them on a baking sheet. Bake for about 45 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center goes in easily.
  2. In a large bowl, mix
  • 1 stick soften real butter, 3/4 cup brown sugar, and 1/2 cup flour together until it’s crumbly looking. See Below
  • Mix the 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp cloves, 1 cup chopped pecans, and 1 cup marshmallows and fold into brown sugar, flour and butter mixture.
  • Slice the sweet potatoes lengthwise down the center and push the ends towards the middle so it opens up like a baked potato.
  • Stuff the sweet potatoes generously with the topping and return to the oven.
  • Bake for another 20 minutes, or until the topping is bubbly and brown.
 Again, I encourage you to make this dish your own.  If you like coconut or a different kind of nut, use it.  I have also even put a little caramel on the potato before adding the topping and placing it back into the oven.  Whatever your family likes, try it in the sweet potatoes.

Topping for the Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Cut the sweet potatoes lengthwise down the middle. Stuff the brown sugar mixture evenly in all the sweet potatoes.

What is on our Thanksgiving and Christmas table besides this Green Bean Casserole?  I am pretty sure you will find most of these side dishes on any Southern Thanksgiving or Christmas table.  My family loves these simple dishes.  I guess it is tradition that I have to fix these sides or at least most of this list.  I do need my family to narrow the list down.  Usually, everyone gets to pick their favorite side dish and they help prepare that dish.  The side dishes highlighted in blue are links to the recipes already on my blog. 

Philippians 4:8  (NIV)  8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. I love this verse.  Sometimes we just need to be reminded to focus on whatever is good and not all the bad things that life throws at us. This is a good reason to really focus on Thanksgiving this month and be truly thankful for all that God has given us. Our minds can worry about everything if we let them.  We have to practice being thankful in every situation and have peace that God is in control of everything.
