Brûléed Sweet Potatoes

  • Author: Misfits Market




  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Prick sweet potatoes all over with a fork. Bake on a foil lined baking sheet, flipping halfway, until cooked through, 40 to 50 minutes. Let potatoes cool completely.
  3. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise and evenly sprinkle sugar over the cut sides. With a kitchen torch, brûlée the sugar until it melts and becomes an amber color.
  4. Let cool for 2 minutes, then enjoy as-is or serve with ice cream, whipped cream, yogurt, granola, or fruit.


No torch? No problem. Pop halved, sugar-coated sweet potatoes under the broiler for 4-7 minutes. Keep an eye on it until all the sugar melts. It won’t be quite as successful as the torch, but it’s the best alternate.
