Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes w/ Butter Pecan Streusel
Watch me make these twice-baked sweet potatoes with butter pecan streusel from start to finish!
These twice-baked sweet potatoes are like individual sweet potato casseroles. People simply love them! If you’re having a small Thanksgiving gathering these would be a perfect side dish. And yes, forget what you heard, twice-baked sweet potatoes/sweet potato casserole are side dishes, not desserts! Hey, I didn’t make the rules but I’m so glad somebody did because it really is like having a pre-dessert with your meal, which means you have an excuse to have a piece of cake afterward. #winning
This is one of my favorite recipes for twice-baked sweet potatoes. The fluffy, creamy filling is mixed with butter, sugar, cinnamon, ginger, and allspice and then topped with a downright delicious butter pecan streusel. For family dinners, I like to serve it alongside steaks or chicken. Soooo good!
