Another One From My Favorite Cookbook...Modified

I love this cookbook. Did I say that before? I don't always use the recipes as they are in the book.  But then again, I do that with a lot of recipes. It's just the recipes in this book don't need a lot of alteration by me.

In this recipe, I switched out white potatoes for sweet potatoes. This is a much healthier alternative to conventional stuffed baked potatoes. They are often filled with cheese and bacon and other ingredients that keep me in business. Try it this way and you may never go back.

      It's really healthy and satisfying. I love something like this on a dreary cold day like we're expecting to get for the next few days.

    I love this cookbook too!

    With this recipe, are you saying that cheese and bacon should not be used?!?!? A good healthy bacon substitute is turkey bacon, right?. Doesn't it have less fat and calories, and it is just as delicious. (please?)

      Paul, Paul, Paul *sigh*. If you must use bacon, even turkey bacon, it should be eaten rarely. It's a highly processed meat and contains loads of saturated fat and sodium. Both of these ingredients are what keeps me in business because they contribute to the advancement of heart disease and certain cancers. I know that isn't what you want to hear, but I'm just here to help you save your own life.

    Karen, I never really thought of making baked stuffed sweet potatoes! Thanks for the idea and the yum sounding recipe!

      I really enjoy them. It's a really satisfying meal all by itself.

    I have to look for this cook book. I've never thought of stuffed sweet potatoes. Sounds delicious. Might try.

      The recipe actually calls for white potatoes. I substituted sweet potatoes for the white potatoes. I believe you can get the cookbook on Amazon. I'm lucky that the author is a friend of mine.
