Holiday Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Ingredients

  • 4-6 Sweet Potatoes
  • 1 lb. of Ground Turkey (or Leftover Turkey from Thanksgiving)
  • 1/2 Cup of Shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/2 Cup of Dried Cranberries
  • 1 Cup of Chopped Spinach
  • 2 tsp. Minced Garlic
  • 1/2 Jumbo Sweet Onion, Diced
  • 4 tsp. Butter
  • 1-2 tsp. Thyme

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400ยบ.
  2. Wash the sweet potatoes and place them on a sheet pan and stick them with a fork a few times.
  3. Cook sweet potatoes for approximately 45 minutes, until tender.
  4. While the sweet potatoes are cooking, brown the turkey in a large skillet over medium-high heat with the onion, garlic, spinach, cranberries, and thyme.
  5. Once the turkey is browned and onions are cooked through, sprinkle on half of the parmesan and stir it into the mixture.
  6. Pull the sweet potatoes out of the oven when they are tender and set them aside to cool off to the touch.
  7. When cool, cut them down the middle with about an inch left on each side of the cut.
  8. Then push the ends of the sweet potatoes toward the middle to open them up.
  9. Place a pat of butter in each sweet potato.
  10. Fill the inside of the sweet potatoes with the turkey mixture.
  11. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on the sweet potatoes.
  12. Place them back in the oven for 5-10 minutes, just enough to heat them through.
  13. Remove them from the oven and let them cool enough to handle them before serving.
