Our family just loves to have fun in the kitchen! Whether its trying unique cooking methods, making smiley face lunches or just cooking with the kids, we are all about family kitchen time at our house.
A lot of our craziness is a last minute, spur-of-the-moment decision!
One of our favorite meals is a Lancaster County traditional favorite — hamballs, sweet potatoes and green beans. Top it off with some shoo fly pie. 😉
Last time I served this meal, I decided to have a little fun with it for the kids. So after I baked the sweet potato, I opened it up and put some large marshmallows on the top and a few walnuts and then roasted it in the oven for a little longer. Simple and cute for the kids!
Here’s the recipe so you can enjoy it in your family too!
- sweet potatoes or yams
- walnuts or pecans
- Preheat oven to 400 F.
- Poke sweet potatoes with a fork.
- Put them on a baking sheet or pan in the oven for 1 hour. (I sometimes line with tin foil so any juices don't make a mess on the pan to clean off.)
- Take the potatoes out of oven. Slice them open.
- Lay marshmallows on top and kind of push them down inside.
- Put a few walnuts on top.
- Broil for 1 minute or until the marshmallows are lightly browned.
