Entire recipe: 250 calories, 1.5g total fat (0.5g sat. fat), 316mg sodium, 55.5g carbs, 7g fiber, 17.5g sugars, 3.5g protein

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 55 minutes


One 8-oz. orange or white sweet potato

1 tsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread

1 tsp. brown sugar (not packed)

3 tbsp. mini marshmallows


Seasonings: cinnamon, salt


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Cut slits through the width of the potato, about 1/2-inch apart, stopping about 1/4 inch from the bottom. (See HG tip below.)

Bake for 50 minutes, or until tender.

Remove sheet. Set oven to broil.

In a small microwave-safe bowl, microwave butter for 10 seconds, or until melted.

Top potato with melted butter, brown sugar, and a dash each cinnamon and salt.

Carefully place marshmallows into the slits of the potato.

Broil until marshmallows puff up and lightly brown, about 30 seconds.


HG Tip: When slicing the sweet potato, place it between two chopsticks on the cutting board. This will prevent you from slicing through to the bottom. Check out this how-to photo!
