Pineapple Walnut Baked Sweet Potato
December 19, 2016 - 3 Comments
It’s cold December day here upstate New York. We totally wanted a baked sweet potato today, but with some extra ingredients on it. We went for pineapple, walnut baked sweet potato with golden raisins and parsley dressing.
I wasn’t sure at first how I wanted to approach this recipe. I did see a bunch of baked sweet potato recipes online but nothing like this.
To make this mouthwatering pineapple walnut baked sweet potato recipe I use three simple core ingredients:
- Golden raisins
How to cook sweet potato?
Cooking sweet potatoes is very easy. One important thing to remember about is to pierce the potato with a fork at least a few times for faster cooking.
**Notice down below in the picture the potato has small fork marks.
Scooping out the baked sweet potato is relatively easy, but you have to do it in a gentle way otherwise, you might break the potato skin.
Sauce – I wanted to add an extra pineapple flavor to the recipe. I decided to make the sauce. I took a cup of pineapple, pinch of golden raisins, one tablespoon of brown sugar, and 1/2 cup of milk. Transfer everything to the blender and pulse it for 5 seconds. When potato is ready, bring the sauce to boil and pour a tablespoon on each potato.

- 2 medium Sweet potatoes
- 2 cups Cubed pineapple
- 1 tbsp Brown sugar
- 1/4 cup Golden raisins
- 1/4 cup Chopped walnut
- 1/4 cup Chopped parsley

Wash sweet potato under cold water. Pierce it with a fork for faster cooking.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Wrap the potatoes with a tin foil and place it on a baking sheet. Cook for an hour and a half or until potato is soft enough to scoop out.
While our potato is in the oven, dice two cups of pineapple. We will use one cup of pineapple for the sauce, and one to stuff sweet potatoes.
Combine 1 tablespoon of brown sugar with a cup of cubed pineapple and half a cup of milk. Transfer to a blender and blend for 5 seconds. When the potato is ready, bring the sauce to a boil and poor one tablespoon on each potato.
After one-hour pull potatoes from the oven and cut them half wise on length. Scoop out the inside of the potatoes and transfer to a ball.
Mix with cubed pineapple and walnuts.
Poor a tablespoon of the sauce on each potato. Garnish with chopped parsley and enjoy!

I love sweet potatoes. This recipe is sure next on my list.
