  • 4 Whole sweet potatoes

  • 1/2 Cup brown sugar

  • 6 Tablespoon butter, melted

  • 1/2 Teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 Cup marshmallow fluff

  • 1/4 Cup chopped pecans

Steps

  • 1

    Scrub the sweet potatoes thoroughly with a vegetable brush.

    Ingredients

    • 4 Whole sweet potatoes

  • 2

    Position a sweet potato lengthwise with a pencil or chopstick on either side of it. (The pencils or chopsticks will be your cutting guides.)
  • 3

    Using a sharp knife, cut each sweet potato crosswise into thin slices, being careful not to cut all the way through the bottom. (The pencils should stop your knife from cutting too deep.)
  • 4

    Repeat with the remaining sweet potatoes. Put the sweet potatoes in a baking dish, cut-side up.
  • 5

    Gently shove the brown sugar into each cut. Mix together the melted butter, cinnamon and salt. Drizzle it over the sweet potatoes.

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 Cup brown sugar

    • 6 Tablespoon butter, melted

    • 1/2 Teaspoon cinnamon

    • 1/4 Teaspoon salt

    When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 400°F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
