Baked Dolloped Sweet Potatoes

Hello all!

     We hope this finds you well!  Today we wanted to share a sweet but healthy dish!  This side dish is so easy to make and has a great healthy aspect to it!  Baked Sweet Potatoes, with a nice sweet dollop on top.  Sweet potatoes are generally so full of flavor but if you just add a touch of flavor to the top you can make them look really nice and add a kick of flavor in case you don't exactly love them.

     One of the reasons we love Sweet Potatoes so much is because they are a natural product of our planet, packed with vitamins and minerals, and digest in our system very easily.   Now the big question is, Yams vs Sweet Potatoes!  Well you can read on the difference till you are blue in the face however they both carry different unique differences.  They both have very healthy facts about them and being able to tell isn't to hard.  However this post isn't to just educate you on the difference.  If you wanted a post on that let me know!

     I can advise we eat more sweet potatoes here however yams are very healthy for you as well.  The Sweet Potato does have a deeper orange color and your local vendor should have them marked correctly.  However you should also be able to tell with the taste if you eat one over the other.

Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Cook Time: 1 hr or more (depending on potato size)
Total Time 1 hour 30 Minutes for us.

4 Sweet Potatoes
3 Ounces of cream cheese (softened)
1 Tablespoon butter (softened)
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 Pinch of cinnamon

Wash, scrub and then dry your sweet potatoes.
With a fork or knife poke hols in the potatoes.
Set your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Place the potatoes on a sheet pan and cook.
Let cook between 1 hour up to 1 hour 25 minutes.  Pending on the size.
While cooking, make the topping.
In a medium bowl, place the cream cheese, butter, brown sugar and cinnamon.
With a fork mix well then use a whisk if needed.  You want it to be creamy.
When the potatoes are done remove and test with a knife.  It should slide in easy and come out clean.
Use the knife to cut the middle and spread the sides apart.
Let cook a bit and use the fork to fluff the potato.
Place a dollop of the topping over the potato.
Repeat and then serve hot!

Here they are!

     We do hope you enjoy the video below.  This meal really has a wonderful taste to it and sweet potatoes are so healthy for us!  They have lots of vitamins and minerals as well as they digest very easily in our bodies.

     Thank you again for joining us today, if you wanted more info on sweet potatoes you can ask us or do a bit of searching.  There is so much information on the internet.  I know there maybe some Yam fans out there so if you want me to cook some of those just ask!    Again thank you for stopping by and checking out our site!
