I made this recipe a few times before and everyone enjoys it. I am making it this year for Thanksgiving instead of the usual sweet potato casserole, to be more corona friendly.
3 large sweet potatoes
4 tablespoons packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
For the streusel:
3 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup walnuts chopped
2 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350 F. Prick sweet potatoes with a fork or knife and bake for 30 minutes or until soft. You can also microwave the sweet potatoes on high for 13 to 15 minutes.
Once sweet potatoes are cooked, slice in half and scoop out the centers into a bowl, leaving a ¼-inch border of sweet potato with the skin. Mix in brown sugar, butter, salt, and cinnamon until smooth. Spoon filling back into sweet potato shells.
In a small bowl, combine all ingredients for the streusel and mix together until butter starts to warm and ingredients start sticking together. Top the filled sweet potatoes with the streusel and bake 20 to 30 minutes. Serve warm.
