Makeover Streusel-Topped Sweet Potatoes
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min.
- 6 medium sweet potatoes
- 1/2 cup reduced-fat butter, melted
- 3 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1/4 cup unsweetened apple juice
- 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
- 1/4 cup reduced-fat butter, melted
- Scrub and pierce sweet potatoes; place on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 15-18 minutes or until tender, turning once.
- When cool enough to handle, cut each potato in half lengthwise. Scoop out the pulp, leaving thin shells. In a large bowl, mash the pulp with butter and eggs. Stir in juice and vanilla. Spoon into potato shells.
- Divide between two 13-in. x 9-in. baking dishes coated with cooking spray. Combine the topping ingredients; spoon over top. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160°.

I have made this twice now, and will definitely make it again. I used an egg substitute as well, and also left out the coconut. I baked the potatoes in the oven and put the filling in an 8x10 baking dish rather than refilling the skins and it worked great!

I loved this recipe! I left out the coconut to satisfy my husband. I can't wait to take it to Thanksgiving this year!

Adjusted this using egg substitute and omitted the pecans. It was excellent-both kids and adults loved it.
