Grown up Baked Sweet Potatoes: Baked and Stuffed with Feta and Sundried Tomatoes.

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…..

I love feta…..

Baked sweet potatoes stuffed with feta and sundried tomatoes..it's not your mama's sweet potato...

 

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….

    I don’t like marshmallows in my sweet potatoes either – yuck! I do a sweet potato casserole with pecans and brown sugar topping, but I do like savory sweet potatoes, too. The feta and sundried tomatoes sound so good! Looks great, too!

    Although I do like those candied sweet potatoes on occasion, I agree on the too much! I like a good plain sweet potato . Not a feta fan but some gouda would be golden for me with your recipe. I shall make next week. YUM!

    I love sweet potatoes but have never had them stuffed with feta and I can’t recall ever having one any that look that good. Your recipe looks like absolute heaven to me and I just might send my son to the store right now to pick up the potatoes. I have everything else so its on for sure!
