Spicy, cheesy and smoky re-stuffed sweet potatoes
Yep you heard that right, spicy, cheesy and smoky re-stuffed sweet potatoes. I did you all a favour and took a sweet potato, scooped it out of it's sweet, sexy skin and then mashed it up with a shitload of delicious flavours and then stuck it right back in there. I fucking love a sweet potato and so should you. Fill your boots friends!
TIME: 2 hours MAKES: 2
2 large sweet potatoes
25g of salted butter
4 spring onions, finely sliced
100g of mature cheddar cheese, grated
50g of gruyere cheese, grated
50g of brie, cubed
1/2 teaspoon of smoked sea salt
1 teaspoon of smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon of hot cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon of maple syrup
1 fresh red chilli, finely choped
1 fresh red chilli, sliced (garnish)
1 bunch of fresh chives, finely chopped
1. If you are after that delicious smoky flavour then fire up your BBQ, get the coals nice and hot and throw a small chunk of oak on the coals, a chunk the size of a rubix cube, prick the potatoes and add them to the bbq and then cover the bbq with a lid and let them smoke for 1.5 hours at around 130°C.
2. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C – Once the potatoes have been cooked, slice them in half and scoop out the insides and place into a mixing bowl leaving the skin in-tact. Place the skins on a baking tray and bake in the oven at 180°C for 10 minutes to crisp up.
3. Mash together the sweet potato flesh with all of the ingredients until you reach a creamy consistency.
4. Remove the skins from the oven and fill each skin with the sweet potato mixture.
5. Serve and enjoy!
