Hawaiian Stuffed Sweet Potato

Hawaiian Stuffed Sweet Potato
This recipe is so yummy & can be served as a side with a beautiful steak or as an entire meal on it’s own. I LOVE sweet & savoury together & I am a huge Hawaiian fan! If you make extra you can refrigerate them and have them for lunch the following day.

INGREDIENTS

4 sweet potato
3 rashers of bacon
1/2 cup pineapple (I used fresh but you could use unsweetened canned)
1/4 grated tasty cheese (optional)
Salt to taste

DIRECTIONS

  1. Heat the oven to 180 degrees
  2. Wash the sweet potato, leaving the skin on
  3. Pierce the sweet potato with a fork several times
  4. Place in the oven and bake for 45 minutes, turning a couple of times
  5. Pull out of the oven & let cool until they are cool enough so that you can handle them
  6. Dice the bacon & pan fry
  7. Dice the pineapple. Place the pineapple, bacon & grated cheese in a large bowl
  8. Once the sweet potato are cool enough, cut them down the centre (length ways) & gently scoop out all of the flesh with a teaspoon
  9. As you scoop out the flesh be careful to leave the skins in tact
  10. Mix the flesh with the other ingredients & salt to taste
  11. Fill the cases up with the mixture & place back in the oven for a further 10 minutes
  12. Enjoy as a meal on their own or as a side to a lovely steak

  1. looks ridiculously good. i just started eating starches again after 16 months and now all i wanna eat are potatoes and sweet potatoes. i got some purple japanese sweet potatoes from whole foods and i think these would work great.
