3 large sweet potatoes (5 or 6 smallish ones, or 4 mediums)
1/2 C drained crushed pineapple (we use a whole 10oz small can)
2t grated orange peel (about one whole orange)
2t rum or rum flavor....or not at all
2T brown sugar
Wash, grease and bake sweet potatoes one hour.
Peel and mash with butter.
Add pineapple, orange zest, rum and brown sugar.
Cut oranges in half and scoop out the insides. We like to save the orange "inner" for breakfast the next day.
Put the mixture into the orange halves that have been scooped out. Sprinkle with nutmeg and reheat for about 20 mins.
They work great for individual serving and they have their own little cup so they don't touch other food. For those that can't stand to have their food touching. The baking in the orange up adds a nice citrus flavor and is different than your normal pan of sweet potatoes with marshmallows.
