Twice Baked Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

  • Serves 4
  • Preparation Time: 30-40 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4-5 medium sweet potatoes
  • ½ cup 5 Minute Cranberry Relish (or store bought)
  • ½ cup dried unsweetened cranberries
  • ½ cups pecans (optional)

I created this dish as a way to use leftover cranberry relish. But it’s so good, that now I make cranberry relish all year round just so I can make this. I freeze the cranberries when they are in season.

Instructions:

Bake sweet potatoes until tender.

Cool slightly and then cut in half. Scoop pulp from each potato half leaving about a ¼” border so that the potato half will stand up and can be filled.

Mash sweet potatoes with a potato masher and add cranberry relish and dried cranberries. Mix well to combine.

Scoop potato mixture evenly into potato shells.

Sprinkle with pecans, if desired.

Bake in a 350ºF preheated oven for 30 minutes or until heated through.
