Overloaded Sweet Potato

Items Needed for Baked Sweet Potatoes:

1 Sweet Potato per person

Mini Marsh Mellows



Caramel Topping

There is two baking methods, the longer version, requires poking the sweet potato several times, wrapping them in foil and baking in the oven at 375 degrees, for a good hour or until soft. The easier method I like is, the microwave. Poke the potato several times, and place two or three into the microwave and push the potato preset button if you have one for as many potatoes that you have. If you don't, then the cooking time is approximately 5 minutes per potato.

When the buzzer goes off, remove and repeat for the remaining sweet potatoes. Let cool slightly, cut a slit down the middle, and squeeze the sides to open. Spoon out the insides, and place in a bowl. The quantity of the next ingredients are according to your liking,and the amount of mashed potatoes you have, increasing the contents for more then three potatoes, 1 Tablespoon butter, little bit of milk, 1/2 tablespoon brown sugar, pinch of nutmeg, and mash to blend. Now add to the mashed potatoes mini marsh mellows, and caramel topping, tossing gently. Place each sweet potato onto a piece of foil that has been sprayed with non stick cooking spray and seal. Place into a warm oven until ready to serve.

If any of you have eaten out at Texas Roadhouse, you will see this is very similar to their ultimate Sweet Potato they serve. ENJOY!
