Stuffed Baked Sweet Potatoes

It is common for steakhouses in our area to offer baked sweet potatoes as a side, just like a baked potato, only with butter, sugar and cinnamon. This is a fancier version that sound delicious, ie. the sweet potato version of a stuffed potato. I have not tried it, but hope you enjoy! Cook time includes time to initially cook the sweet potatoes.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Bake sweet potatoes for 1 hour or until tender.
  3. Cut 1 inch strip lengthwise from top of the potato.
  4. Carefully scoop pulp from shell.
  5. In a large bowl, combine sweet potatoe pulp, orange juice, butter and salt.
  6. Beat until fluffy.
  7. Stir in pineapple.
  8. Stuff shells with the mixture.
  9. Sprinkle with pecans.
  10. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.

Outstanding recipe! So glad to have found it. Easy and I love the orange cinnamon flavor, it really is different.

The potatoes were tasty & the high fibre skin wasn't wasted like the casserole type recipes! I scaled down to 2 potatoes & used fresh pineapple, finely chopped. My only issue was that it was a little too mushy for our tastes - so I'll cut back on the OJ next time. Thanx Bobtail!
