Sweet Potatoes with Apples
Twice-baked sweet potatoes, subtly flavored with orange
peel and nutmeg.
Prep: 30 min - Bake: 1 hr 15 min
8 medium sweet potatoes or yams
1/2 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 medium (2 cups) tart cooking apples, peeled, cored, coarsely chopped
Heat oven to 350°F. Prick sweet potatoes with fork to allow
steam to escape. Bake for 55 to 65 minutes or until folk tender.
Cut thin, lengthwise slice from top of each sweet potato; scoop
out inside, leaving thin shell. Place shells on 15x10x1-inch
jelly-roll pan; set aside.
Place hot sweet potato and all remaining ingredients except
apple in large mixer bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl
often, until well mixed and no lumps remain (2 to 3 minutes).
Stir in apples by hand. Fill reserved shells with sweet potato
mixture. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until heated through.
Makes 8 servings
TIP: If desired, do not stuff shells. Spoon hot sweet potato
mixture into serving bowl.
