My kids really, really like sweet potatoes. My oldest would eat several in a meal easily, and he loves them with some healthy fats like butter or coconut oil, and bit of salt. One of our favorite recipes is stuffed sweet potatoes, because it’s so easy to make and is very filling.

For Any Meal of the Day …

These are surprisingly great for breakfast and you could substitute any meat or leftover meat for the sausage. I make a bunch of these ahead of time and wrap in foil for quick meals. Just pop them in the oven to heat them up. They are also wonderful post-workout meals after weight training to refuel muscles without grains.

If you bake the sweet potatoes, and assemble all the fillings and toppings, you can also make a “sweet potato bar” to let everyone in your family create their own stuffed sweet potato creation.

    This looks like a tasty recipe but how in good conscience could you suggest that this or other fat filled recipes are healthy? With all we know about fats, dairy and meat this and most of your other recipes should be considered “sometimes” foods if ever.
