Meatless Monday -Loaded Sweet Potato

Posted by on Monday, October 17th, 2011


Here’s a pleasing side dish that is much easier to make than sweet potato casserole and is a tasty way to welcome fall.  Just wash some large sweet potatoes, and wrap them in foil. Then bake them at 425 degrees for about an hour, until potatoes are soft when you squeeze them. Next remove foil, slice potatoes lengthwise and fluff the sweet potato a bit. Add a generous portion of real butter to each potato, 2-3 Tablespoon dark brown sugar, a couple of shakes of cinnamon, then top each sweet potato with a few miniature marshmallows. Return loaded sweet potatoes to oven and broil until marshmallows are a toasty golden brown. Grandmother Bybee always served white beans with her sweet potatoes. I think loaded sweet potatoes can also stand alone as a meal. Either way – they are a WINNER!
