Who doesn’t love that over the top Texas Roadhouse sweet potato?! Oh, Mama!! Check this copycat recipe out!!!!
Tender sweet potatoes topped with marshmallows, that signature Texas Roadhouse honey cinnamon butter, and a heavenly caramel sauce. These sweet potatoes are the best side dish for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or just a nice Sunday dinner.
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 and my need to create a copycat recipe.

How to Make Texas Roadhouse Sweet Potatoes
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 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.
All you do is bake the sweet potatoes, and then top with the butter, marshmallows, and caramel sauce. Then you bake it a little longer to get those marshmallows roasted, and you’re done! You could even switch the oven to broil to toast them up really quickly. You’ll only need a minute or so on broil, so keep a close eye on them!
Are Sweet Potatoes Healthier than Regular Potatoes?
Both regular potatoes and sweet potatoes are an excellent source of fiber with a great nutritional punch.
Sweet potatoes have fewer calories and fewer carbs, but more sugar. Sweet potatoes are also higher in fiber.
Sweet potatoes are higher in vitamin A, providing 400% of daily requirements. They also have more vitamin C.
Can Sweet Potatoes Be Yellow?
Sweet potatoes come in a large variety of sizes and colors.
The skin can be white, yellow, red, purple or brown, and the flesh can be white, yellow, orange or purple.
Can I Eat the Sweet Potato Skin?
The skin is actually one of the my favorite parts. I know, I’m a weirdo according to my kids! But it just adds the tiniest bit of texture and I love it! You can choose to scoop the flesh of the potato out of the skin, or just devour the whole thing like me!
Tips for the Best Loaded Sweet Potatoes
Use real butter for the honey cinnamon butter. It has to be real or it won’t be right!
Use an oven mitt or two when you pierce into the center of each potato because they will be piping hot! I usually put one over mitt on and slice each potato and then put another one on and then hold each end with each hand and push inward to open them up.
Don’t forget to stick the sweet potatoes back into the oven after you get all the toppings on so the marshmallows can melt a little and get all roasted and gooey!
