I stumbled across this recipe a while back from the how sweet it is blog (check this site out for some seriously awesome dishes) and have been meaning to make it ever since. Thank the baby I finally did. Ah-maz-ing.
So simple, but so delicious. And not to mention filling. I’m not sure if I would consider it dinner or dessert…but hey, it satisfied my craving for both.
Ingredients (for one serving…or 2 if you have the will power to eat only one half…which i do not):
- one medium yam or sweet potato…whichever you prefer (I went yam – they’re a bit sweeter )
- 2 tbs goat cheese, plus a sprinkle for topping
- 1/4 cup seedless red grapes
- 1 tbs honey, plus a drizzle for topping
- dash of salt, pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg
- Preheat over to 350 degrees F. Stab the potato a few times with a fork and wrap in tinfoil
- Bake for 60-90 minutes, or until the potato is soft in the middle
- Unwrap foil, cut potato in half, and wait until cool enough to handle
- Put grapes in a baking dish and roast for 30 minutes (you can toss the grapes in some oil and a bit of salt and pepper, but I eliminated this step to cut some of the extra calories from the oil, but I’m sure it would be delish)
- While grapes are in the oven, scoop out the flesh of the potato into a bowl (try to keep the skin intact as you will be re-stuffing these bad boys)
- Mix in goat cheese, honey and seasonings and add mixture back into the potato skins
- Top with additional goat cheese, roasted grapes and a drizzle of honey
