Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

  • 2 large or 4-5 small sweet potatoes, holes poked throughout with a fork
  • 2 tablespoons butter or bacon grease
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 large onion or several small onions, diced
  • 1/2 pound ground meat (turkey, pork, beef, or alpaca)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 5-6 cups fresh spinach, kale, or collards, chopped
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 425. Wrap sweet potatoes in foil and bake for 45-50 minutes for large potatoes, 30-35 if small. Once the sweet potatoes have about 10 minutes left to cook, add 2 T butter to a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the minced garlic and onions to the pan. Once the onions are translucent, add the ground meat and break up with a wooden spoon. While the meat is cooking, add the cayenne pepper and mix with the meat. Add salt and pepper to taste, and remove from heat. When the sweet potatoes are done cooking, slice down middle and mash up insides with fork. Scoop the meat mixture into the potatoes, and enjoy
