I don’t know WHAT came over me tonight. I just wanted something different and apparently, I’m a little obsessed with ‘S’s. ;~P
This morning I pulled out some tilapia fillets to make Crispy Baked Parmesan Crusted Tilapia. Along side, I was planning to make Sweet Potato Fries but by the time I got home from work, I just wasn’t in the mood.
Then I realized I really only eat sweet potatoes one of two ways, fries and baked. Why not try something new! So I experimented and I’m glad I did even if the husband and the toddler weren’t fans. Well, that’s not quite the truth, neither would even try one so I’m not sure if they would have liked them or not. Oh well more for me. Now I have lunch tomorrow!
- 2 sweet potatoes
- ½ of a small onion
- 4-5 button mushrooms
- ½ tsp curry powder
- 1/8 tsp dried rosemary
- Salt & Pepper
- ½ oz gouda cheese grated
- 1 tbsp (7g) real bacon bits
- Dried chives for garnish
- Non-stick cooking spray
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Pierce the skin of the potatoes and bake them for about 45 minutes until they are tender. To give them a jump-start and shorten the cooking time, pop them in the microwave for 5 minutes. Once they are tender, pull them out of the oven and let them cool.
While the potatoes are cooling, sauté the onion and mushrooms over medium heat with a bit of non-stick cooking spray for about 10 minutes until the mushroom start to reduce down. Season the onion mushroom mixture with the curry, rosemary, salt & pepper.
Cut the potatoes in half scoop out the centers leaving the skin with a bit of flesh like a boat.
Mix the potato flesh with the onion mushroom mixture until well blended. Place the mixture in a large zip lock bag. Cut one of the bottom tips off and use the bag to pipe the mixture into the skins.
Top each potato with the cheese, bacon bits and chives. Bake for about 15 minutes.
