Baked Sweet Potato With Marshmallows
You know I advocate eating seasonally here on the blog and we try to stay with and use as many minimally processed foods as we can. Well, not when marshmallows are in season! You did know it is marshmallow season, right?
This really is going to be one of those simple post that just had to be done right here before Thanksgiving.
We start out with two rinsed and scrubbed sweet potatoes wrapped in foil. Bake them in a 400 degree oven, turning once halfway through the cooking time, about 40-45 minutes.
Remove them from the oven and carefully slice then split them to open.
Add some pats of butter and a generous handful (or two) of marshmallows, then return to the oven under the broiler for a couple of minutes — watching closely as not to burn the marshmallows.
Remove and serve immediately!
Who else is down with marshmallow season and do you incorporate this ingredient into anything on your table during Thanksgiving?
E.A.T. local E.A.T. well (and every once in a while put a marshmallow on it)
