Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

(2 Votes)
1 Hr 20 Min

Tired of the same old potatoes? Well, here's a new easy twist on an old standby that turns whatever you serve them with into a more special dish. Yams do that all the time? they've got a holiday touch to them.

What You'll Need:
  • 4 sweet potatoes or yams
  • Vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh or 1 teaspoon dried grated orange rind
  • 1 cup flaked coconut (optional)
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Scrub the potatoes thoroughly and rub with oil. Put in a shallow baking pan, prick top of each with a fork.
  2. Bake 1 hour, or until tender. Remove from oven, and lower oven temperature to 350 degrees F.
  3. Let potatoes cool, and cut a slice from the top of each one. Carefully scoop out pulp, leaving shells intact.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the potato pulp, sugar, milk, orange juice, cinnamon, and salt; beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Stir in the orange rind and 1/2 cup coconut.
  5. Spoon potato mixture back into shells. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup coconut.
  6. Bake 20 minutes or until heated through.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I made these for Thanksgiving dinner and they were a real hit. I wanted something other than sweet potato casserole, something a little less sweet, and these filled the bill. The orange juice cut some of the sweetness and added a great flavor. I baked them and stuffed them early in the day and then just warmed them up when we were ready to eat. Very simple, very good and a great presentation. Thank you, Mr. Food!!
