Monday’s Bread Bowl: White Sweet Potato Bake

A sweet surprise that’s easy to sink your teeth into

The Mixed Stew crew recently tried to improvise on traditional recipes for sweet potato casserole for something different. Sweet potatoes are a healthy and flavorful alternative to rice or regular potatoes. We think you’ll enjoy this comfort food dish that we’ve made with white sweet potatoes. Here’s our recipe:

What you will need:

Nonstick cooking spray
1 (9 inch x 13 inch) baking dish
foil wrap
4 – 5 large white sweet potatoes, precooked (See below.)
vegetable oil
1 (20 oz) can pineapple chunks, drained
1 cup cheddar jack cheese, shredded
1 pack apple crisp

Cooking and Directions:

Bake the potatoes whole, coated with vegetable oil, and wrapped in foil for about an hour or until tender inside. This can be done days ahead. Cut potatoes into pieces when ready to make this dish. Preheat oven at 350 degrees. Coat baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Position and spread sweet potato pieces and pineapple chunks in baking dish. Sprinkle on shredded cheese on top. Next, pour on apple crisp. Place baking dish in oven and bake for 45 minutes. Serve hot.
