Crab Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

by Tickled Red on November 19, 2010 · 53 comments

What do you get when you take a glorious baked sweet potato and cram it full with fresh light crab meat, along with a few other goodies? I’ll tell you what you get guys. You get an over the top Are You Serious! concoction just begging to take center stage but more than happy to warm your heart as an amazing new side dish.

Since this is the first recipe post in our new digs I thought that I would start things off with this crazy brain child that has been nagging at me for a week now. Also get ready for the recipe format to change just a bit. You’ll find all of the ingredients listed below from now on.

Okay enough chit chat on to the fun part.

After you’ve baked your cute little sweet taters in the oven set them aside and start making what I call crab stuffing…and will be making from now as my midnight snack.

In an already heated skillet, removed from the hot eye, brown your butter. Brown please… not burnt. Since your skillet is already hot this will take all of 30 sec., or less. Immediately add the wine and stir.

Over med-high heat saute the red onions and celery in the wine infused butter. When the veggies are just beginning to soften, add the mushrooms to the mix and continue cooking for about 5 min.

Then toss in the beautiful crab meat, a little ginger and some lemon juice. Salt and pepper to taste. Let the crab cook just long enough for all of the flavors to meld, approx. 4 minutes.

In a large mixing bowl combine the crab mixture and some torn pieces of day old thick country white bread.

Then just for kicks and giggles add some cream into the scheme of things.

Cut your sweet potatoes in half, scoop out the centers with a spoon and stuff away.

Bake until they are all warm and happy. About three minutes before you pull them out of the oven, sprinkle a little Parmigiano Reggiano cheese over the top.

What you will end up with is a lovely little bite of nuttiness on top that compliments this unusual pairing of rich buttery crab stuffing and sweet potatoes. Ta-dow y’all! I know that this combo may sound crazy but it is good ole’ comfort food with a coastal kick. I can’t wait to add this to my next Surf-N-Turf menu. Watch out baked potato, steak may have a new best buddy.

I hope that you enjoy giving this crazy brain child a try. Please feel free to play around with the recipe and make it your own. More coastal Thanksgiving yummy goodness coming this weekend.

Love ya,

Tickled Red


Crab Stuffed Sweet Potatoes-Makes 4 stuffed potatoes

Cook time approx. 1 1/2 hrs (includes baked potatoes)

Prep time approx. 10 minutes


3 tbsp butter

1 cup dry white wine

1/2 cup red onion, finely chopped

1/2 cup celery, finely chopped

1/2 cup mushrooms (portobello, oyster, crimini) chopped

1 cup crab meat

1 1/2 tsp lemon juice

kosher salt & cracked pepper (to taste)

1/2 tsp ginger or substitute with 1/2 tsp fresh rosemary

2 slices day old thick country white bread

1/3 cup  heavy cream (just to moisten the stuffing mix, add a lil’ more or less as needed)

1 tbsp Parmigiano Reggiano cheese

After you’ve baked your cute little sweet taters in the oven set them aside and start making what I call crab stuffing.

In an already heated skillet, removed from the hot eye, brown your butter. Brown… not burnt. Since your skillet is already hot this will take all of 30 sec., or less. Immediately add the wine and stir.

Over med-high heat saute the red onions and celery in the wine infused butter. When the veggies are just beginning to soften, add the mushrooms to the mix and continue cooking for about 5 minutes.

Add the crab meat, ginger and lemon juice to the vegetable mixture. Salt and pepper to taste. Let the crab cook just long enough for all of the flavors to meld, approx. 4 minutes or until most of the liquid has been absorbed and reduced.

In a large mixing bowl combine the crab mix, torn pieces of day old bread and just enough of the cream to moisten your stuffing. Combine thoroughly. The stuffing should not be soggy, it should just be able to stick together.

Bake at 350 until they are all warm and happy. About three minutes before you pull them of the oven, sprinkle a little Parmigiano Reggiano cheese over the top.
