BAKED STUFFED SWEET POTATOES

Baked Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with Brown Sugar, Pecans, Marshmallow, Cinnamon, and Butter.

These Baked Stuffed Sweet Potatoes are the perfect excuse to eat dessert as a side dish.  In the South, we actually call this recipe a side dish.  It is a far stretch for even me but it is a fabulous,  indulgent treat perfect for your holiday table.

Are Sweet Potatoes Good For You?

If you eat sweet potatoes as a Southern side dish/dessert, NO! But, normally sweet potatoes are good for you. They include vitamin B6, potassium, and iron. They are also a good source of dietary fiber which helps to promote a healthy digestive tract. I know too much information.

I love a simple sweet potato with a little honey, cinnamon, and a tad of butter. It is oh, so good that way too.

Baked Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Because these sweet potatoes are loaded with goodness. They are more like a dessert than a side dish. For that reason, I save these special treats for the holidays. Truly these delicious 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.  If you are serving other side dishes with these sweet potatoes, you may want to use small potatoes.  They are filling!  These potatoes are fantastic on any holiday table.

Choosing A Side Dish When Eating Out

My husband knows me so well. If a baked sweet potato is an option for a side dish, I am ordering it. I am never disappointed with this humble potato. It is always fabulous! Baked sweet potatoes are warm, creamy, smell amazing, and taste delicious.
