What's this?

Caramelized sweet potatoes will make your sweet tooth sing--Christmas carols.

Ingredients

  • 4 Whole sweet potatoes

  • 1/2 Cup brown sugar

  • 6 Tablespoon butter, melted

  • 1/2 Teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 Cup Marshmallow Fluff

  • 1/4 Cup pecans

Steps

  • 1

    Scrub the sweet potatoes thoroughly with a vegetable brush. Position a sweet potato lengthwise with a pencil or chopstick on either side of it. (The pencils or chopsticks will be your cutting guides.)
  • 2

    Using a sharp knife, cut each sweet potato crosswise into thin slices, being careful not to cut all the way through the bottom: The pencils should stop your knife from cutting too deep. Repeat with the remaining sweet potatoes.
  • 3

    Put the sweet potatoes in a baking dish, cut-side up. Gently shove the brown sugar into each cut.
  • 4

    Mix together the melted butter, cinnamon, and salt. Drizzle it over the sweet potatoes.
  • 5

    When ready to cook, set temperature to High and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  • 6

    Cover the baking pan with foil and position on the grill grate and bake the potatoes for about 1 hour, or until they are tender.
  • 7

    Take off the foil and spoon the molten caramel sauce back over the sweet potatoes.
  • 8

    Spread the marshmallow fluff over the top of each and sprinkle with pecans.
  • 9

    Put the baking dish back on the Traeger, uncovered, and cook for another 5 to 10 minutes or until the marshmallow topping is toasty brown.
  • 10

    Transfer the potatoes to a platter or plates and give them another good drizzle of that caramel sauce before serving. Enjoy!
