Pineapple and brown sugar enhance the natural flavor of sweet potatoes while sunflower nuts add a bit of crunch.
medium dark-orange sweet potatoes
cup drained crushed pineapple in juice (from 8-oz can)
tablespoon sunflower nuts
tablespoons packed brown sugar
Heat oven to 375°F. Scrub potatoes; prick all over with fork. Place in shallow baking pan or pie pan (do not use glass). Bake 55 to 65 minutes or until tender.
Set oven control to broil. Cut potatoes lengthwise in half. Mash cut sides slightly with fork. Spoon pineapple over cut sides of potatoes. Top with sunflower nuts and brown sugar.
Broil with tops 4 to 6 inches from heat 2 to 3 minutes or until brown sugar is bubbly.
Place the sweet potatoes in a pan before you bake them so any syrup that leaks out won't create a mess in your oven.
