Ingredients

4 medium-size sweet potatoes
2 tablespoons sliced almonds
1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple in juice, drained
1 (11-ounce) can mandarin orange sections, drained
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 tablespoons reduced-calorie margarine
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preparation

Scrub potatoes; pierce with a fork, and arrange in a circle on a paper towel in microwave oven. Microwave at HIGH 14 to 16 minutes or until soft. Let stand 5 minutes.

While potatoes cook, place a small, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add almonds, and cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute or until toasted. Set almonds aside.

Cut potatoes in half lengthwise; carefully scoop out potato pulp, leaving 1/4-inch-thick shells. Set shells aside. Combine pulp, pineapple, and remaining 5 ingredients, stirring well. Spoon potato mixture into potato shells. Cover and microwave at HIGH 4 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Top with almonds.
