Baked Sweet Potato Jacket Recipe


I was wondering what to do with the sweet potato and leftover luncheon meat in my fridge, and then suddenly I got the idea of baking it to make jacket potato. First I steamed the sweet potato for around 20 minutes to soften it. Then I cut the potato into halves and scoop up the middle portion. I cut both the middle sweet potato portion and luncheon meat into cubes. Add some onions into this mixture and put them back into the sweet potato cavities. Pour some olive oil over the sweet potato; add a dash of pepper and some salt to taste. Line some cheese on top of the potato. Baked the sweet potato in a preheated oven at 200 Dec C for 15 minutes. I love the sweetness of the aromatic baked sweet potato! Delicious!

Ingredients
Sweet Potato, 1 pc
Luncheon Meat(or bacon), 1 pc, cut into cubes
Onions, 1 small, minced
Olive oil, 1 tablespoon
Salt to taste
Pepper, a dash

LOL!!! I would just steam or bake. Very nice! Tried making mashed sweet potatoes once like what I had at a restaurant in Penang - but not as nice as ordinary mashed potatoes.

Purple yam tastes good cooked in any way! Not to mention with cheese.

Great idea! Next time must remember to choose those fat-fat ones for this purpose. I usually buy those thin and slim ones...

I bake normal potatoes, scoop out the insides and mash them with an equal quantity of cooked sweet potato, butter, cream seasoning and blue stilton. I then re-stuff the skins and sprinkle with more cheese and bake for another 20 mins. Delicious!
