Today I am off and doing some prep work for the big meal on Friday.... that and spending time with my son who is over from Texas.


• 6 medium sweet potatoes, washed and skins scrubbed
• ¼ c firmly packed light brown sugar
• ¼ c butter- melted
• 4 oz. cream cheese – softened
• 1 t vanilla extract
• ½ t ground cinnamon
• ¼ t ground nutmeg
• ¼ t salt
• 18 jumbo marshmallows


Preheat your oven to 350
Bake the sweet potatoes on a baking sheet until soft, approximately 1 hour. Remove from oven and let stand long enough to be cool enough to handle. Cut the potatoes down the middle lengthwise and remove the insides to a medium size bowl, keeping the skin shells. Beat the insides on medium speed until smooth. In another bowl, beat the brown sugar, butter, cream cheese, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt at medium speed until smooth. Add the mixture to the sweet potatoes, beating well. Spoon the micture back into the potato shells.
Bake on a baking sheet until heated through, about 15 minutes. Place 3 marshmallows on top of each potato and bake 5 to 10 minutes, until marshmallows are brown. Serve immediately
*Notes* Potatoes can be baked 1 day ahead. Then do the mixing on the day of serving
