Stuffed Sweet Potatoes Southern StyleFrom choclytcandy 8 years ago
- 1 10-ounce package frozen collard greens or 1 cup cooked collards shopping list
- 4 medium-sized sweet potatoes shopping list
- 6 slices bacon shopping list
- 4 green onions, sliced, including tops shopping list
- 1/2 cup heavy cream shopping list
- 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese shopping list
- 4 tbs butter or margarine, softened shopping list
- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper shopping list
- 1/2 tsp salt shopping list
- 1 cup finely grated swiss cheese shopping list
How to make it
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook the frozen collard greens according to package directions. Drain well.
- Arrange sweet potatoes on a baking sheet or in a baking pan and bake until fork-tender, 1 to 1/2 hours. When the sweet potatoes are cool enough to handle, slice each lengthwise, carefully hollow out the inside with a spoon, and place the flesh in a large bowl. Set the potato shells aside.
- Fry the bacon until crisp in a large skillet, then transfer to a paper towel to drain, reserving the drippings in the skillet. Add the green onions and collard greens to the bacon fat and saute over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add the greens mixture to the sweet potato flesh in the bowl.
- Crumble the bacon and add it to the bowl along with the cream, Parmesan cheese, butter, cayenne pepper, and salt.
- Using an electric mixer or hand masher, whip the potato mixture until smooth. Place spoonfuls of the potato mixture into the sweet potato shells, mounding it in the center.
- Top the stuffed sweet potatoes with the Swiss cheese. Bake for 20-30 minutes, until the potatoes are heated and the cheese has melted.
