Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

If you sweet potatoes then you may love this old-fashioned recipe for Sweet Potato Pone. It’s a unique dish and delicious.

❤️WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

These potates are so easy to make and a wonderful addition to any holiday menu. These are perfect for a small gathering and everyone will get their own potato stuffed with delicious brown sugar, cinnamon and marshmallows. Much easier than making up a sweet potato casserole and you can make the sweet potato earlier in the morning, set aside in a warmer and then add the toppings right before you eat.

❓FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do you poke holes in your potatoes before cooking?

I do, but I know some people don’t, but these potatoes will leak, so I put a pan under them in the oven.

I am not a fan of marshmallows, can I leave them out?

Of course, you can leave out whatever you don’t like. Very versatile recipe.

STORING AND REHEATING

I just store these in an airtight container and reheat in the microwave.

    Your recipes are amazing! I love your instructions and information. Earlier this year I found out I am diabetic and am tracking my carbs religiously. Would you think about including such information in the recipes please?
