This is an unusual way to serve baked potatoes, but if your family is like mine, they'll love it. It's a regular on our menu at Thanksgiving and Christmas.

  • 2 small sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup canned crushed pineapple
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon dried cranberries
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pecans, divided


  1. Wrap potatoes in foil and bake at 400° for 45-50 minutes or until tender. Let stand until cool enough to handle. Cut a thin slice off the top of each potato and discard. Scoop out the pulp, leaving a thin shell.
  2. In a small bowl, mash the pulp; add the pineapple, brown sugar, butter and salt. Stir in cranberries and 1 tablespoon pecans. Spoon into potato shells. Sprinkle with remaining pecans. Place on a baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 8-12 minutes or until heated through.
