Sensational Loaded Sweet Potato Recipe

Don’t you just love how some people can make the most delicious recipes with minimal ingredients?  That’s certainly what our contributor Ilona from Ilona’s Passion has done this week.  This loaded sweet potato not only looks amazing, but it’s incredibly easy to whip up!

Loaded sweet potato with spinach, bacon and cheese is the best dinner that I’ve had recently.

I’m not a sweet potato person. I don’t eat them often. And I buy them rarely. However, after reading many recipes with sweet potato I’ve decided to give a second chance to this vegetable.

I have so much spinach at my home all the time and I thought that sweet potato plus spinach would taste perfect. I was definitely right.

I added  some bacon and cheese. The whole loaded sweet potato tasted amazing. I couldn’t stop eating.

At first I baked sweet potato in the oven by itself. Then I saute some spinach with bacon on the pan. And I loaded my sweet potato with yummy ingredients and baked again. The whole process was so easy and the outcome was incredible.

I’m very passionate about potatoes and I hope that you found my other delicious recipe Basil Roasted Red Potatoes. A couple of simple ingredients and an amazing dish can be made.

After my loaded sweet potato I know that I will buy them more often and they will be seen a lot on my plate during dinner time.

There are many simple and tasty sweet potato recipes on the internet. I’m so happy that I can browse and decide what else can I do with this vegetable.

I have so many ideas in my head right now. In the meantime enjoy loaded sweet potato with spinach, bacon and cheddar cheese. I can tell it’s very good.

    What a great idea! I make stuffed spuds all the time but had never thought of using sweet potato for something like this! I was given some home grown white sweet potato over the weekend so will try a version of this during the week. Stopping by from Merry Monday over at Pinterventures.

      I’m quite addicted to stuffed spuds at the moment Kelly. It doesn’t help that it’s cold and miserable here in Oz at the moment. Would love to hear your version of these 🙂
