Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes with Bacon Pecan Streusel and Marshmallow Drizzle. Now that’s a mouthful. A sweet, creamy brown sugar, maple, mouthful. Thanksgiving can’t come soon enough for these beauties!
With Thanksgiving just a couple weeks away, I’ve been having fun elevating ordinary Thanksgiving recipes into extraordinary recipes that are so addictingly delicious, you will be making them year-round. Grandmother’s green bean casserole has been delishified into Dijon Maple Green Beans with Caramelized Pecans, Bacon and Feta. Pumpkin pie has been delishified into Double Layer Pumpkin Oreo Cheesecake. Caramel Apple pie has been delishified into 7 Layer Candy Apple Cheesecake Bars.
Now its sweet potato casserole’s turn. And its taking full advantage.
I have always loved twice baked potatoes and used to beg my mom to make them. Now everyone will be begging you to make these twice baked sweet potatoes because I don’t think sweet potatoes have ever tasted more heavenly. And what’s better than heaven? Nothing. Absolutely nothing.
Let the delishifying begin…
The sweet potatoes are first rubbed in coconut oil and salt, baked then stuffed with a creamy, rich filling of sweet potatoes, brown sugar, butter, cream cheese, maple, vanilla, cinnamon and a pinch of ginger and cayenne. Mix these ingredients together and try not to eat all the filling plain.
It will be hard.
The velvety brown sugar filling is then topped with a sweet and savory streusel of brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, butter, pecans and bacon.
Heaven. Well almost. Bake and broil the Brown Sugar Bacon Pecan Streusel until the brown sugar caramelizes, the butter melts and the pecans roast…
And of course, no Thanksgiving sweet potatoes are complete without marshmallows, so you can either add marshmallows and toast them when you bake the streusel, or, as I prefer, you can top with silky sweet, EASY, marshmallow drizzle. I could eat this stuff with a spoon…oh wait…I get to and so can you – shamelessly…
Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes with Bacon Pecan Streusel and Marshmallow Drizzle. Thanksgiving can’t come soon enough to share this delishified forfkuls of heaven!
