Baked Sweet Potato with Maple Sour Cream

This recipe is a great side idea for a holiday meal. It is different and may cause some people to say 'ew' but it is truly delicious and will surprise people!

Simple recipe. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.

Wash up some sweet potatoes.

Line a baking sheet with foil.

Take a fork and fork the potatoes all over and then place them on the foil. Put them in the oven for about 45 minutes. When there is about 5 minutes left its time to mix up the tasty topping.

I used yogurt instead of sour cream but you have to use real maple syrup, not pancake syrup.

Get them together in a bowl to form a delicious alliance.

Try not to sit down and eat this delicious treat, save it for on your sweet potato.

Cut the potato in half and give it a squeeze. Spoon the sauce over and enjoy! I had this with just a simple side salad.

I loved the yogurt topping so much I made this again the very next day with the other potato.


  1. Really simple recipe and really delicious pictures! Can't wait to try this. I love baked sweet potato. Usually I just eat it as it is. I'll try the "heavenly" topping next time. ^^

  2. This is definitely something I will try. I usually eat meatless at least three nights a week and this would be perfect with that salad on the side.

  3. There are some things I never would think to combine, and sour cream and maple syrup (or yogurt and same) are two (three?) of them. Very interesting idea, though.

  4. Hi...

    It's Abby's Mom from DWB...

    I have a question: My son is coming home for Christmas & he is a vegetarian but will eat some fish...

    He said he likes tuna...Do you have any good recipes for Tuna Steak?

    I've never cooked tuna in my life, & I have no idea what to do...

    I would appreciate any ideas you may have...


  5. That looks good. I love your blog! I wonder how that would be stired in the sweet potatoes and made into sort of a souffle (or casserole).

  6. We're making this for our Christmas Day dinner! It looks incredible.

    (We're having a very maply Christmas. Last night I served gingerbread cake with maple whipped cream to my family).

    Thanks for sharing all these wonderful recipes.

    Merry Christmas!
