You might just think of Thanksgiving as the time of year to bake sweet potatoes or yams, but really they are quite good any time of the year. I particularly like them as a side to grilled chicken, barbecue or even the occasional meatloaf.

Baked Sweet Potato with Marshmallows
Serves:      1    Preheat Oven Temp:    400

Ingredients List  
1 medium sweet potato or yam
1 Tb. butter
1 Tb. brown sugar
1/2 cup mini marshmallows

Step-by-Step

1 Scrub and rinse the sweet potatoes and dry with paper towel.
2 Use a fork to stab the potatoes several times all over and arrange them on a baking sheet.
3 Bake for 45 minutes (up to 1 hour depending on the size of the potatoes) until tender soft.
4 When finished cooking, remove potatoes and slice almost through lengthwise.
5 Spread the butter all over the inside surface, sprinkle the brown sugar and then top with the marshmallows.
6 Return the potatoes to the oven and broil just a minute or two, until the marshmallows start to brown on top. Allow them to cool for a couple of minutes before serving.
