Roasted grape, goat cheese, & honey stuffed sweet potatoes

I made this dish for dinner tonight. I was very happy with how it turned out. Delicious! This is a great side dish or even a meal. And its low-fat and gluten-free!

Preheat oven to 350. Poke holes in the sweet potato with a fork, wrap tightly in foil and bake in the oven for about an hour until soft.

When the potatoes are soft, slit them open with a knife and gently remove the flesh of the potato. Mix potato flesh, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg and honey.

Lay grapes on a nonstick baking sheet and drizzle with grapeseed oil and a pinch each of salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Roast at 450 for 20-25 minutes, or until grapes begin to burst. Remove from the oven and let cool.

Stuff potato shells with mashed potatoes. Top with roasted grapes, additional cheese and drizzle with honey. Delicious!

Roasted Grape + Goat Cheese + Honey Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

makes 4 potatoes

4 sweet potatoes

2 cups red, seedless grapes

1 teaspoon grapeseed oil (or another high heat oil)

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

4 ounces goat cheese

2 tablespoons honey + additional for drizzling

pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350. Poke holes in sweet potato with a fork, and wrap tightly in aluminum foil. Bake for 45-60 minutes, until potatoes are tender. Unwrap foil and cut a slit down the middle of each sweet potato. Let sit until cool enough to handle.

Increase oven temperature to 450 degrees F. Lay grapes on a nonstick baking sheet and drizzle with grapeseed oil and a pinch each of salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Roast for 20-25 minutes, or until grapes begin to burst. Remove from the oven and let cool.

Once sweet potatoes are somewhat cool, gently remove the flesh with a spoon, trying to keep the potato intact. Add the sweet potato to a large bowl, then mash with 3 ounces of goat cheese, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, pepper and honey. Taste and adjust seasonings if desired, then scoop flash back into the potato skins. At this point you can re-warm the potatoes (if you let them cool completely) in the oven, then top with remaining goat cheese. Add grapes on top and serve with additional drizzled honey.
