Sweet, Sweet Potato

Who doesn't love sweet potato casserole? It's a staple at every Thanksgiving, or at least in our family it is. My dad is usually the chef for that recipe. But about a year ago, I was traveling for work down in Kentucky and a co-worker ordered his dinner and it came with a sweet potato that was topped with marshmallows!

Basically, all you have to do is bake a sweet potato as you would normally bake them. Once baked, cut the potato down the middle, but not all the way through, and spoon some mini marshmallows down the center while the potato is still hot. Then sprinkle a little nutmeg or pumpkin-pie spice on top of the marshmallows and enjoy!

If you're counting points, a large sweet potato is 3 points, and 2 tablespoons mini marshmallows are not even 1 point (.5 to be exact).
