Nutrition Profile:


  • 1 medium sweet potato (about 8 ounces)

  • 2 teaspoons light brown sugar, divided

  • 2 teaspoons butter, softened

  • teaspoon cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon orange zest

  • 1 tablespoon orange juice

  • Pinch of nutmeg

  • Pinch of salt

  • 10 mini marshmallows

  • 1 tablespoon chopped toasted pecans


  1. Position rack in upper third of oven. Preheat to 425°F.

  2. Prick sweet potato all over with a fork. Place on a baking sheet and bake until tender when pierced with a knife, 45 to 50 minutes. Switch oven to broil.

  3. When cool enough to handle, halve the sweet potato lengthwise and, leaving the skin intact, scoop out the flesh into a medium bowl. Add 1 teaspoon brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, orange zest, orange juice, nutmeg and salt; mash until chunky-smooth. Fill the potato skins with the sweet potato mixture and top with the remaining 1 teaspoon brown sugar and marshmallows.

  4. Broil until the marshmallows are browned on top, 1 to 2 minutes. Top with pecans before serving.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
