Double Stuffed Sweet Potato

Lately, Jax and I have been spending a lot of time in the kitchen experimenting with new foods and recipes. We never let our favorite foods become boring as there is always a new way to prepare it!


Sweet Potatoes have many benefits including  their high vitamin C, B6, D, magnesium and potassium. They also contain iron and help support a healthy immune system. The fuel provided for athletes by eating these super foods is invaluable. If you are an athlete you should be eating these. I always recommend that athletes consume sweet potato workout.

Our latest creating is a Double Stuffed Sweet Potato. These were a big hit in our house. After all, goat cheese makes everything taste better!

Ingredients:

2 medium sweet potatoes
1 egg, slightly beaten
3 tbsp ghee or raw butter
1/2 cup green onions
4 tbsp goat cheese

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Add parchment paper to a banking sheet.
  3. Scrub the potatoes. Use a fork to puncture a few holes into the potato. Place potatoes on baking sheet.
  4. Bake for about 60-70 minutes or until you can easily pierce the potato. It should be soft and well cooked.
  5. Let sit for 10 minutes until cool enough to handle.
  6. While the potatoes are cooling, saute the green onions in some butter or oil.
  7. Slice the potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop out the insides. Leave a little potato stuck to the sides.
  8. Add ghee or butter to the bowl of sweet potato and mash. Add the egg, green onions, goat cheese and mix together. Spoon the mixture into the sweet potato shells.
  9. Bake for 20-30 minutes, until puffed and lightly browned. Top with some goat cheese and enjoy!

 

We hope you enjoy this as much as we did!
