Recipe: Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

We used to go to a steakhouse that served the largest sweet potatoes I have ever seen… you could make a meal out of the sweet potato alone.. it was baked and stuffed with lots of brown sugar and cinnamon … and butter… lots of butter and mini marshmallows… it was truly orgasmic.

It really is so easy to make… and well worth trying it.. it would make a great dish for the holidays.


The larger the potato the better.. believe me..

Use cold butter to cut it into the sugar and cinnamon… you want tiny little pebble-like pieces…

I broke the recipe down… so all you have to do is multiply it out for how ever many potatoes you want to make…. the recipe below makes two large sweet potatoes, so divide it in half and you have what you need for each potato.

Use as many marshmallows as it takes to cover the top of the potato.

I hope you enjoy this super simple recipe!

Recipe: Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

All you need:

2 large sweet potatoes
3 tablespoons cold butter, cut in small pieces
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Dash of salt
Mini marshmallows
Chopped pecans (optional)

All you have to do:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Wash and pierce the potatoes all over with a fork.

Place on a baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes or until a knife easily pierces through the potato.

Slice a slit down the middle of the top of the potato and open it up. Allow to cool slightly.

In a medium bowl mix the sugar, cinnamon, flour and salt.

Drop the little pieces of butter into the bowl and using a pastry cutter or fork.. cut the butter into the sugar mixture until it is crumbly.

Spoon the topping on top of the open potato… reserving a little for on top of the marshmallows.

Sprinkle with chopped pecans if using them.

Top with mini marshmallows.

Sprinkle with the reserved chopped pecans.

Bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.

They really are delicious! Sometimes eating out is the best source for new recipes!

I must also add.. that my sweet-toothed significant other said I could have piled more brown sugar and cinnamon in... so maybe next time I'll omit the marshmallows and add more of the other topping.. (big sigh) but then he will surely complain the marshmallows are missing..

Thanks for stopping by!
