Stuffed Sweet Potato
Ever had a stuffed sweet potato? This is one of my husbands favorites, and it is so simple to make. The flavors blend so well, and it is melt in your mouth delicious...
turkey ground beef
chopped onions and pepper
Preheat your oven to 400F or 200C Just take your sweet potato wash it well and wrap it completely in aluminum foil. Then place your wrapped sweet potato into the oven and let it slowly cook for about 1 hour or until you poke it with a knife and it easily pierces the potato.
Whilst it is cooking in the oven work on your stuffing. In a pot put a pinch of olive oil and your chopped up fresh onions and peppers. Sautee or mix around a little until it is just golden brown and then add in your turkey ground beef and your seasonings. I used salt, pepper, lawrys seasoning salt and onion powder. (But you can play around with the seasonings and use your own mix) once that is done continue cooking on medium high heat until all cooked through and browned; mixing every few minutes so that it wont burn (for about 10 - 12 minutes).
Once your potatoes come out of the oven, unwrap it out of the aluminum foil. Slice it in half long ways. and simply scoop your stuffing in the center of the potato and top it off with a spoonful of cream cheese for that added creaminess and flavor.
