Double Baked Sweet Potatoes
Baked potatoes, -Paleo style!
What you need:
- 1 sweet potato (per person)
- liquid fat (e.g. melted bacon fat, butter, clarified butter, ghee or coconut oil)
- salt (to taste)
- crushed black pepper (to tate)
- fillings of choice (e.g. crispy fried bacon pieces, fried chopped onion, garlic, fried diced chicken, cream cheese, grated hard cheese, herbs etc)
What to do:
| 1||Pre-heat the oven to about 400-430F (200-220C).|
| 2||Brush the potatoes and cut out a wedge lengthwise.|
| 3||Coat the potatoes and wedges in the fat and then put the wedges back, then cover them in a generous amount of salt and black pepper.|
| 4||Place on an oven sheet and bake until the meat is soft all the way through (about 60-70 minutes).|
| 5||Take them out of the oven and let cool for 5 minutes or so, then scoop out all of the meat from the potatoes (including the wedges) and place into a bowl.|
| 6||Add your fillings of choice, and mix it all using a fork.|
(The ones in the picture have crispy bacon bits, butter, garlic, cream cheese, parmigiano, black and white pepper and chili flakes).
| 7||Fill the empty skins with the mix, and top with grated cheese if you’re ok with that.|
| 8||Put them back in the oven and bake for a little while more.|
You also put the skins from the wedges back in the oven for a while, which makes pretty awesome, crispy chips!
For Whole30 compliance:
Wisely choose your fillings and fat...
