Sweet and savory Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes - no matter how they're filled or topped, these delicious sweet potatoes will be the perfect side dish at your dinner or holiday meal.
Adjust oven rack to center position and preheat oven to 375°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil. Wash sweet potatoes, scrubbing off any dirt, and pat dry. Arrange potatoes on baking sheet and cook for 1 hour.
If some of your potatoes are larger than others, you may have to pull the smaller ones out of the oven after an hour and bake the remainder for an additional 15 minutes.
Since the size and sweetness of sweet potatoes can vary, add the ingredients gradually and adjust the maple syrup and seasonings to taste. I typically start with 4 tablespoons maple syrup and ¼ teaspoon salt. I add additional maple syrup (1 tablespoon at a time) and more salt (1/4 teaspoon at a time) until everything tastes just right.
The pecan streusel recipe above is enough to top 6 sweet potatoes. If you want to top some of your sweet potatoes with marshmallows, reduce the streusel recipe accordingly.
