Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Position rack in upper third of oven. Preheat to 425°F.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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