Today we are posting for all of you a great recipe that was sent over to us by the great folks over at Taste of Home. If you are looking for more great recipes make sure you check out their site!

Makeover Streusel-Topped Sweet Potatoes Recipe

•6 medium sweet potatoes
•1/2 cup reduced-fat butter, melted
•3 large eggs, lightly beaten
•1/4 cup unsweetened apple juice
•1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract


•3/4 cup packed brown sugar
•1/2 cup flaked coconut
•1/2 cup chopped pecans
•1/4 cup reduced-fat butter, melted

Scrub and pierce sweet potatoes; place on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 15-18 minutes or until tender, turning once. When cool enough to handle, cut each potato in half lengthwise. Scoop out the pulp, leaving thin shells. In a large bowl, mash the pulp with butter and eggs. Stir in juice and vanilla. Spoon into potato shells. Divide between two 13-in. x 9-in. baking dishes coated with cooking spray. Combine the topping ingredients; spoon over top. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160°. Yield: 12 servings.

Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with Land O'Lakes light stick butter in a 1,100-watt microwave.
