The Challenge: Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes
I wanted to do something unique this holiday season. I was looking for a recipe that would allow me to combine some of my favorite Turkey Day favorites into something new and fun. I also had this idea for a yummy aioli to drench it in that combined all the best harvest spices like sage, allspice, thyme, and more.
What I came up with was twice baking sweet potatoes that were stuffed with dried cranberries, sunflower seeds, green beans, and other tasty holiday inspired toppings. The result was somewhere between an epic sweet baked potato bar mixed with a Thanksgiving feast - all in all not a bad combination I must say!
The recipe really isn't too tough. Bake sweet potatoes to start. Saute some of your favorite Thanksgiving veggies. Make sweet potato boats. Top with all the veggies. Rebake. Whisk an aioli and serve it up. Yum!
A very interesting and new take on Harvest Day meals...this one won't disappoint!
