    Bone Man's Note:

    A great brunch or side dish idea. I would characterize this dish as elegant, easy to prepare, pleasing in flavor and CHEAP! You could expand the recipe and serve these potatoes to a bunch of guys for a SUPER BOWL or poker party. My wife really loved this version of the venerable and versatile sweet potato.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400-degrees F.
    2. 2
      Wash the sweet potato and rub it all over with the olive oil. Poke it a couple of times on TOP with a fork so that it doesn't blow up while baking. Do NOT wrap it in aluminum foil! Bake in the oven at 400-degrees F. for about one hour.
    3. 3
      In a small bowl, melt the butter in the microwave for a few seconds, reserving two slices for topping later, and then blend in the brown sugar.
    4. 4
      When the potato has baked to the point that the pulp is tender, and after it has cooled a bit, carefully cut out the top and scoop out the pulp into a medium mixing bowl. Save the intact potato skin! Mash the potato pulp with a fork and add in the butter/brown sugar mix.
    5. 5
      Spoon the potato pulp back into the potato skin and top with the two slices of butter, the sugar, and the cinnamon.
    6. 6
      Place the potato on a cookie sheet and BROIL on high for about 6 minutes. Watch it carefully so that it doesn't burn the top.
    7. 7
      Serve hot.

      Great way to get sweet potatoes into everyday dinners. I microwaved mine for 5-7 minutes first to get them soft. These had really great flavor, thankd for posting!

      This was awesome! I had some trouble at first, this was the first time I ever cooked sweet potatoes and my skin fell off of my potatoes! So always one to take lemons and make lemonade, I decided to make mashed sweet potatoes instead. I quadrupled the recipe, mixed it together, and then put it back in the oven for a few minutes. The flavor was unbelievable. I made this with Cola Pork Roast and the flavors complemented each other perfectly! Thanks Bone Man!

      excellent lunch/light meal for my 3 yr old to hold her over until dinner. followed recipe; used all organic ingredients and subbed turbinado sugar (trying to avoid refined sugar for her) and then used a splash of molasses to give it the brown sugar flavor. she loved it. thank you for sharing.
