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:

1Pre-heat the oven to about 400-430F (200-220C).
2Brush the potatoes and cut out a wedge lengthwise.
3Coat 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.
4Place on an oven sheet and bake until the meat is soft all the way through (about 60-70 minutes).
5Take 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.
6Add 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).
7Fill the empty skins with the mix, and top with grated cheese if you’re ok with that.
8Put 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...
