Baked Sweet Potatoes: Baked and Stuffed with Feta and Sundried Tomatoes
I have a confession: the thought of a sweet potato casserole topped with marshmallows makes me gag.
That’s right. I said it.
There has always been that dilemma when you go to someone’s house for Thanksgiving or Christmas and there it is. With a more prominent place than the turkey.
It’s too sweet.
It’s…got marshmallows on it.
It’s not right.
Yes, I am a sweet potato snob.
If I do decide to eat them, most of the time, I just throw some butter on the top of a baked sweet potato and keep it moving.
But I figured you guys already knew about that. *side-eye if you don’t*
But for the grown ups…those who want a sweet baked potato with a twist..I bring you…..
Baked Sweet Potatoes: Stuffed with Feta and Sundried tomatoes.
I love feta…..
And I now have a new appreciation for sundried tomatoes. I mean guys……it was sweet with the sharp taste of the feta and the savory taste of the sundried tomatoes.
I’m drooling as I write this and I’m thinking I’m going to have this for lunch later on. Cause….
YOU HAVE TO TRY IT!
- 2 medium sweet potatoes, scrubbed clean
- 2oz low fat crumbled feta cheese
- 1 oz sundried tomatoes ; thinly sliced
- ¼ cup (1 handful) chopped fresh parsley
- ½ teaspoon dried or 2 teaspoons fresh oregano; chopped
- 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste.
- First, preheat your oven to 400F.
- Take a fork, and pierce your sweet potatoes SEVERAL times with a fork.
- Place them on a baking sheet in the oven lined with parchment paper.
- Bake until the sweet potatoes are easily pierced with a knife and cooked through, about 45-60 minutes depending on size of your sweet potato.
- When they are done, remove from the oven and set aside to cool.
- For the topping:
- Mix together remaining ingredients in a small bowl and set aside. That is all.
- Slice sweet potatoes lengthwise down the center to expose cooked insides, top with your mixture and serve.
