Texas AgriLife Extension Service

We are making Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes on this week's "Dinner Tonight." Watch some simple steps to an amazing dinner for your family.

Prep time: 20 minutes
Bake time: 1 hour


  • 6 large sweet potatoes (3-12 to 4 pounds)

  • 1/4 cup orange juice

  • 6 tablespoons cold butter, divided

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground all-spice

  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans


  1. Pierce potatoes with a fork. Bake at 375 degrees for 40-60 minutes. Let potatoes stand until cool enough to handle. Cut them in half lengthwise; carefully scoop out the inside of the potato, leaving a 1/4 inch shell.

  2. Place potatoes in a large bowl and add orange juice. Melt 3 tablespoons butter; add to the potatoes and orange juice and beat until smooth. Stuff the potato shells; place in an ungreased 15x10x1 baking dish.

  3. In a small bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger and all-spice and mix. Cut in remaining butter until crumbly and stir in nuts. Sprinkle over potatoes.

  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
