Baked Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Baked Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

When you cannot bake a sweet potato casserole, try these Baked Stuffed Sweet Potatoes.  Dessert?

Truly these delicious stuffed sweet potatoes are one of my favorite Thanksgiving and Christmas side dishesWhen 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.

Baked Stuffed Sweet Potato Recipe
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.
