Texas Roadhouse Loaded Sweet Potato

Be sure and join me on Facebook for the latest updates on new recipes! 

Whenever I go out to eat to Texas Roadhouse, I always order their loaded sweet potato as a side. I LOVE it!  Well, I got a craving for one last week and decided to make them for our side dish.  They were DELICIOUS!

Recipe from: Merely Marie

1 small/medium sweet potato
1 Tbsp. melted butter
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
dash of cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 F
Rinse a sweet potato under running water (using a vegetable scrubber is good if you plan to devour the potato skin), pat dry, and prick the potato all over with a fork.
Line a small baking pan with parchment paper & put your potato on top.
Bake for 45-50 minutes for a small or medium size potato or about 1 hour for a large potato.
While it’s baking, make glaze topping.  Combine melted butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla.
When potato is finished cooking, cut it open lengthwise, be careful, potato will be HOT!
Stuff a handful of marshmallows inside.  Pour butter/sugar mixture on top of the marshmallows.  Then add another handful of marshmallows.
Turn oven to broil and put potato back in the oven until the tops of the marshmallows brown.  Keep a close eye because this happens fast (about 1 minute).
Remove and allow to cool for a few minutes.
While waiting you can sprinkle a little cinnamon on top if you would like.

    FYI.....they dip the sweet potatoes in bacon grease and slow bake them for added flavor

    I was so disappointed... My sweet potatoes came out hard - even after an extra 25 minutes in the oven. I don't know what to do but this always seems to be the case and I love sweet potatoes!

      Next time you can boil the potatoes for about 20 minutes, cool off and place in the oven for another 35 minutes or until fork goes in effortlessly

      For perfect sweet potatoes every time - wrap in plastic Wrap and pop in microwave for 10 minutes on high. (That's for a large potato - less time for smaller potatoes) I do white potatoes this way too.
