Ingredients

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.

    You make me want to hop on a plane and return to the South for a visit and food fest. I never thought to add or top sweet potatoes with cheese but hey, I am open to learning new taste sensations. Way to go!
