4 (about 2 pounds) sweet potatoes
2 tablespoons orange juice
2 teaspoons country-style Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper


Heat oven to 400°F.

Prick sweet potatoes with fork.  Bake 50-55 minutes or until soft.  Cool slightly on cooling rack. 

Cut lengthwise slit in potatoes almost all the way through, leaving about 1 inch at each end intact.  Scoop out flesh, leaving 1/2-inch border on skins. 

Place flesh into bowl; add all remaining ingredients.  Beat at medium speed until smooth.

Spoon mashed potato mixture evenly into skins. Bake 15-20 minutes or until heated through.

Top with Cinnamon Sugar Butter Spread, as desired.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

My husband was impressed with this delicious and easy recipe. It looked great and tasted even better. There were no leftovers. A wonderful option to use instead of regular potatoes.

I always have him make twice the amount needed because I love having leftovers. This year, I decided that rather than serving it alongside leftover turkey and mashed potatoes, I was going to try something new.
