I love that restaurants serve baked sweet potatoes more now with flavored butter on them. You can easily duplicate that at home. This recipe for brown sugar-cinnamon butter makes the baked potato taste just like in a restaurant. Here's how to do it.
Things You'll Need
- brown sugar (light or dark)
- margarine or butter
Assemble the ingredients (brown sugar, margarine or butter, cinnamon).
Use this proportion: 2/3 margarine to 1/3 brown sugar.
Use a spoon to mix the margarine (or slightly softened butter) with the brown sugar in a small bowl or ramekin.
Add a dash of cinnamon (see the picture above). This is very much a taste thing, so you'll know better how much you like after the first time.
Tips & Warnings
- Let the butter soften at room temperature. Don't use the microwave or you'll have liquid butter.
- Just make what you need for one meal. It doesn't store well in the refrigerator.
