Double Sweet Baked Potatoes

Level of difficulty: low

Cooks for 2

2 medium to large (fat) sweet potatoes (yams)
6 oz brown sugar
4 tbsp of butter
4 tbsp of sour cream
1 tbsp cinnamon
Sea salt
Fresh ground pepper

If you like sweet potatoes you will love this version of them, especially if you have a sweet tooth like me.

Bake your sweet potatoes in tin foil in the oven or the bbq at 375 degrees for 35 – 50 min depending on the size. Remove them from the oven and when you open the foil wrap they should be cooked so that they are loose in their skin, or seemingly almost over cooked. Split them open and spread generous amounts of butter over both sides. Next step is to sprinkle as much brown sugar as you think you can handle over the melted butter, follow this with a light sprinkling of cinnamon (optional). The final step is to add a dollop of sour cream to each side.

Serve your Double Sweet Baked Potatoes accompanied by the meat of your choice (see Jeff’s Blue Cheese Steak) and a salad. Depending on your meat any medium heavy bodied red wine would work well.
