..... and Happy Thanksgiving!
Individual Sweet Potatoes with Pecans & Marshmallows
6 small sweet potatoes (about 4 pounds)
1 stick unsalted butter
Sea salt, to taste
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1. Preheat your oven to 400º. Wash and scrub potatoes, and wrap individually in foil while still slightly damp. Place potatoes directly on oven rack; bake at 400º for about 1 hour or until fork tender. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly and then remove all the foil.
2. Cut a 4 inch slit in the top of each potato, and pull the potato apart a bit. Sometimes it easier to push together at both ends.
3. Add about 1 pat of butter to each potato and mush it into the flesh of the potato with a fork. Try and stir the butter into the potato without breaking the skin or messing up the potato too much. Then sprinkle 1 teaspoon of brown sugar, 1 pinch of salt, and 1 teaspoon of finely chopped pecans all over the top of the potato (but still inside the skin). Add your miniature marshmallows right on top of everything and place on a baking sheet, and continue to bake at 400° for 5 minutes or until marshmallows are golden brown and slightly melted. Serve warm. Enjoy!
TIP: You can add or subtract the amount of pecans, butter, and brown sugar. It's just to taste so you really can't mess up the recipe.
