Baked Sweet Potato Cinnamon and Sugar Dinner

Dinner will be light again tonight. Baked sweet potato. I have added butter, cinnamon and sugar. Sometimes I will sprinkle pecan pieces on top as well. You can mix your own cinnamon and sugar together in a dispenser or you can buy it already mixed. This combination is also great for cinnamon toast with butter. Sounds like not much of a meal to many of you probably, but I love this kind of light dinner during the summer. Photo is mine. Ever had a baked sweet potato? I love the ones at Longhorn and Logan's steakhouse. Enjoy your evening everyone.

@CarolDM I never imagined that potatoes could be eaten with sugar and cinnamon.

@Nevena83 Sweet potatoes can. Many restaurants serve them like this.

If you had cut up the yam and layers all those items you would have what we call candied yams.

@crazyhorseladycx Planting fresh ones is always the best. But I buy the ones for the microwave to bake. When I make casseroles I buy the candied yams.

MrsJ loves baked sweet potato with lots and lots of butter. I've never tasted it, myself, though.

That is what this is, along with cinnamon and a little sugar.

@CarolDM MrsJ says sweet potatoes are sweet enough without adding sugar. She's a bit irritating that way.

I have never tried sweet potatoes, but I have trouble trying new foods since I am a picky eater. Glad you enjoyed this meal!

You may not like these but they are also healthy without all the extras.

@CarolDM A lot of the time for me it is the texture of certain foods....but I have heard of them being healthy (although the carbs would still be too high for my diet)

@CarolDMT I caught that. I meant that I like pecans on them, just as you do. I thought my sweet potato treat was kind of unique, so I was pleasantly surprised to see that someone else enjoys them the way I do.

I love sweet potatoes and we've been cooking them in the air fryer. They come out sooooo good! Your sweet potato looks delicious with your cinnamon and sugar sprinkled on top. Yesterday I added some cinnamon and sugar to a waffle and it almost tasted like a churro

I have to get me an air fryer. I hear so many of you talking about them here. I need to remember to add to my waffles too.

Cinnamon reduces body sugar. It cools the feeling.

I love a sweet potato with all that stuff on it! Haven't tried the pecans, but my daughter always puts them on her sweet potato casserole at Christmas and I eat it for dessert!

Well, I do add a little extra cinnamon and sugar and it is a little sweet but so good. It could be dessert.

This one does not appeal to me at all. But I cannot knock it. Just would not eat it.
