Twice Baked Pumpkin Stuffed Sweet Potatoes #SundaySupper



My obsession with pumpkin has been well documented over the last few weeks. Between Pumpkin Applesauce, Pumpkin BBQ Sauce, and 3 Cheese Pumpkin Mac and Cheese, I have been literally dreaming about different ways to use pumpkin in new and exciting ways. 

I know, 

I dream of food,

It is a hazard of being a food blogger.

Either that or I am just very strange.

Let's not debate that OK?


So you know that when I found out the theme for this weeks Sunday Supper was "Squashin' Winter" I was a very happy camper.

Oh, for a moment, I did harbor the idea of using different  ingredient. 

Maybe butternut, maybe acorn, but heck, I would felt like I was cheating if I went any other direction.

So pumpkin it was!

I still wanted to use ingredients that were seasonal. So sweet potato came to mind as well. 

I have been wanting to do a twice baked sweet potato for quite some time. I had thought about going a sweeter route with it. But when I decided to use pumpkin, I knew I wanted to stick to savory.

And that, my foodie friends, is how I decided to make this dish.

Oddly enough, at least for lately, everyone was on the same wavelength with me and thought this sounded really good.

Little did we know that it wouldn't be good

It

was

A M A Z I N G!!!

My son even took some to his girlfriend at work and they just about had to physically wrestle it out of the hands of their boss.

Tell me that didn't make me feel pretty ding dang good!!

I can guarantee you that I will be making these potatoes many many more times this season!


Twice Baked Pumpkin Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

  • 4 large sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup non fat Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese
  • 4 chopped green onions
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Fresh ground nutmeg, to taste



Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Pierce the sweet potatoes with a fork and place them directly on the oven rack. Bake for 45 minutes.

Remove sweet potatoes from the oven and allow to cool briefly.

Carefully cut each potato in half and scoop out the inside, being careful not to tear the skin. Combine the sweet potato with the other ingredients and spoon it into the skins.

Bake for 20 minutes.

ENJOY!!
