Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

(Stuffed Sweet Potatoes)

I made this as a side for the Turkey Tenderloin I served Bill and the boys the other night. It was really delicious! I had a hard time keeping my hands out of the bowl containing the streusel! I found this on foodnetwork.com, it's one of Tyler Florence's little gems and I knew I had to share it with you guys.

12 large sweet potatoes
3/4 cup (11/2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup light brown sugar
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup toasted pecan pieces
1 cup miniature marshmallows

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Wash the sweet potatoes and with a fork, prick the sweet potatoes in a couple of spots and place 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 the butter, brown sugar, and flour together until it's crumbly-looking. Add the cinnamon, salt, pecans, and marshmallows; fold the streusel topping together to combine. Go ahead, I dare you not to start devouring this before it even GETS to the sweet potatoes!

3. Slice the sweet potatoes lengthwise down the center and push the ends towards the middle so it opens up. Stuff the sweet potatoes generously with the streusel topping and return to the oven. Bake for another 20 minutes, or until the topping is bubbly and brown.

  1. This looks so good!! I'm making Thanksgiving dinner and I might try this rather than our "usual" sweet potatoes. Thanks for sharing.

  2. These look really good. I saw his recipe, but it always helps to see how they turn out when a real person makes them. They look even better in your pic! (: Can't wait to try these!

  3. That looks soooooooo good. It's going on my list to try this month.

  4. OH MAN! That looks yummy. I may make that for Thanksgiving this year.

  5. I pretty much live for sweet potatoes like this. I kind of feel like if I eat them any other time besides Christmas and Thanksgiving I will loose all self control and eat them for every meal until I am 1000lbs!
