These stuffed sweet potatoes are out of this world! Filled with caramelized balsamic onions and blue cheese, the flavor combination is outstanding!!!
  • 2 Large sweet potatoes
  • Oil
  • 2 Large onions
  • 30ml Brown sugar
  • 15ml Balsamic vinegar
  • 15ml Fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 75g Strong blue cheese
  • 5ml Fresh thyme, finely chopped
  1. Scrub the sweet potatoes clean and cut away any ugly marks.
  2. Place the potatoes in a roasting pan and brush them liberally with oil. Bake the potatoes in a preheated oven at 200c or 400f for 60 minutes until tender.
  3. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes.
  4. While the potatoes bake, cut the onions into half rounds. Heat a pan over medium high heat and add 30ml of oil. Fry the onions for 10 to 15 minutes until well browned.
  5. Add the sugar and balsamic vinegar and continue to fry for 3 to 5 minutes until well caramelized. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the fresh chopped rosemary.
  6. Using gloves or tongs to hold the potatoes, cut a deep valley into each potato.
  7. Spoon half of the onion into each of the potatoes.
  8. Crumble half of the strong blue cheese over each potato then melt the cheese under the grill in your oven.
  9. Remove the potatoes from the oven, transfer them to platters and serve immediately garnished with little finely chopped fresh thyme.
