Texas Roadhouse Loaded Sweet Potato Copycat Recipe
Oh, Mama!! Check out this Texas roadhouse loaded sweet potato copycat recipe!
Why do I love Texas Roadhouse so much? Is it the house salad with that thick dressing and those darn hard boiled eggs? Is it those rolls that I shovel into my mouth faster than I can say, “one more please!” Actually, I probably am the rolls because I definitely don’t like how loud it is. Cade would for sure, 100% say it’s the Texas Roadhouse Loaded Sweet Potato. Hence this post about the Texas Roadhouse Loaded Sweet Potato copycat recipe.
First you’re going to start with the butter and I cannot emphasize enough, real butter is necessary. No margarine. Sorry. And if you’re like us you’ll want to make extra for soft rolls like our famous potato rolls or homemade rolls.
Then there’s the caramel sauce. I really think this is more a dessert than anything else, but we can all pretend I didn’t say that when you eat it with your big, juicy steak at dinner. The caramel sauce actually keeps really well and heck, you could eat that caramel over ice cream if you wanted!
But before we go on, can we please just talk about the noise again? I am SUCH an old soul. I hate when it gets so noisy that you can barely think. It actually gets annoying to me. Am I the only one? I mean, I get that a restaurant is noisy, but when it gets to be too much noise so that I cannot hear our table guests then dinner just isn’t as fun anymore. In fact, I totally prefer to watch movies at home now too! What the old lady? Everything that was so fun when I was younger just doesn’t seem as real or good enough quality anymore. I’d much rather have great conversation than loud music. Oh golly, I totally just went off on a tangent, see I’m getting older by the minute.
But really, these sweet potatoes are the best because it’s honey cinnamon butter, caramel and lots of gooey marshmallows. I tell Cade over and over it’s more like dessert than a side dish, but he just gives me that little smile and dives in.
- 4 Sweet potatoes washed and pricked with a knife on top once
- 2 cups mini marshmallows
- 4 tablespoons softened butter
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 dash vanilla
- 2 teaspoons honey
- 4 tablespoons butter
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons honey
- Mini Marshmallows
- Heat the oven to 450 degrees. Lay a little foil on the oven rack and place each potato on top. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until cooked through. Pierce the top of the potato in a line from one end to the other and using oven mitts, squeeze in and together, pressing the potato open. Place 1 tablespoon of the honey cinnamon butter and a few marshmallows in the bottom, drizzle with caramel sauce and place more marshmallows on top. Place back in the oven for 2-4 minutes or until the marshmallows are golden and fluffy.
- In a small dish, stir the butter until creamy. Add in the honey, cinnamon, and vanilla and stir to combine. Place the butter on saran wrap and wrap into a log to refrigerate until chilled.
- In a saucepan over medium heat, add the butter, brown sugar and honey, whisking to combine. Cook until it begins to bubble then turn down to low and allow to simmer until thick, about 5 minutes.
