Sweet potatoes lovers will like this.

The potato is baked, then scooped, spiced, rolled in nuts and heated again before serving.

Unlike many sweet potato recipes, this one doesn’t have too much sugar added. The potatoes are mashed with a little sugar plus orange juice, cinnamon and nutmeg, then formed into balls. Each is rolled in chopped pecans, which offers another flavor and texture.
