Tuesday Food Day

Roasted Grape + Goat Cheese + Honey Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Is your mouth watering yet?  We had this for supper last week and this sweet and savory potato is the BOMB!!!!  I had it as my main meal but would be a perfect side. 
 My grapes did NOT come out looking quite like these...in fact I burned half of them, but the ones that survived were sugary gooey treats.


how gorgeous are these grapes!!!!!


Roasted Grape + Goat Cheese + Honey Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
[inspired by Maria's crostini]
makes 4 potatoes
4 sweet potatoes
2 cups red, seedless grapes
1 teaspoon grapeseed oil (or another high heat oil) (I just used olive oil bc that's what I had)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 ounces goat cheese (I used bulgarian feta cheese bc not a fan of goat cheese)
2 tablespoons honey + additional for drizzling
pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg (did not use-sweet potatoes are flavorful enough!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Poke holes in sweet potato with a fork, then wrap each tightly in aluminum foil. Bake for 45-60 minutes, or until potatoes and tender to the touch. 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.
Y'all, you gotta try this!!! I know I say this every time I try a new recipe but SERIOUSLY!!!!! Every single recipe I have tried from Pinterest has been delicious!!!  Each one turns into my new favorite meal!!  This one included-did NOT dissappoint. Sooo good and easy!

Happy Cookin'
