HÃ©hÃ©, j’adore le dessin Ã l’arriÃ¨re des Ã©coliers dans la classe bourrÃ©e et Ã craquer (par contre, y’a un « e » Ã la fin de « Royale » ?)
It’s good to see someone thknniig it through.
I stuff sweet potatoes for breakfast ALL the time, except with a protein powder filling, nut butter, fruit, cereal, and other superfood goodies! 🙂 BEST. DISH. EVER.
What is that sauce in the little bowl .. in the Egg and Bacon and sweet tator picture??? Thank you =) THESE look SOOO yummy.. thanks for the inspiration !
Maple syrup!! So good.
thank you =) ..
My favourite vegetable is broccoli (I know love it when people start telling me stories that imagine if you had to eat broccoli, and I interrupt them saying, yum, I love broccoli -> the shock and disgust on their face usually makes me laugh out loud). Boyfriend’s are sweet potatoes (which I love along with pumpkin), but your confession (“Every time I’m in the grocery store, I swing by and grab a sweet potato”) made me laugh, because every time we are in the store we don’t only grab one, but at least 3 since we usually eat 1 oven baked sweet potato every night while watching series/movies. (And Boyfriend is kinda possessive of the sweet potatoes, whenever I want to cook/bake with them he’s not happy about having to give up one or two of his stash ;-D
Due to this we haven’t experimented much with baking/using sweet potatoes in other ways (though I can’t wait to try them as spiralized noodles and rice).
When I baked them like you (poking holes with a fork through the tinfoil, I noticed that the fork pushed tiny parts of aluminium into the sweet potato that we would have eaten if I didn’t look for it, eek! So be careful with that. Since then I don’t poke through the tin foil.
I think I prefer the most the 3rd, Southwestern black bean, guacamole version 🙂
Hi Stella.. I always microwave mine.. is there a taste difference oven baked & microwave ?? Its just hard for me to wait a hour sometimes.. =)
HI Lee, yes the taste is very different. When you make it in the microwave you are cooking/steaming it, while in the oven it is baked/roasted. The sweet potatoes are much sweeter and somewhat caramellized, which I just love!! It’s like the ultimate healthy dessert, and it’s a joke that it’s a vegetable! 😀
Thank you , I will try it that way for a change.. =)
Oops! Forgot the ratings. Love these recipes – the SW is my fav!
You must try the low and slow baking method – wrap In aluminum foil – no hole poking necessary – bake at 350 for 1-1/2 hours. The flavor is immense! Not to mention, the skin just melts in your mouth as well. And I have never been a fan of sweet potato skin. I love baking/smoking them on the grill as well – love that smoky flavor.
That sounds AMAZING!! Will totally have to try that next time 🙂
Um, these all look delicous! How will I pick which one to make first?
This may be a dumb question, but…. do you poke holes in the sweet potato before you wrap in foil or after? =)
Not dumb at all! Do it after 🙂 So that the air can escape the foil.
Oh sweet potatoes are my favorite! The BEST!!! I like to grill them and top them with anything and everything…Drippy eggs are one of my favorites though…Have a great weekend!
Gimme the Southwestern version all da way!!! I’m even excited for Mark to meet Davida, and I’ve never met her either! 😉 But I already know she’s awesome!!!
