Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
Quick, easy, healthy and filling…these stuffed sweet potatoes check all the boxes! Dinner can be on the table in 15 minutes and you only need 4 ingredients. That’s definitely a win in my kitchen!

I chose to use my air fryer to cook the potatoes to get that fluffy inside and crispy skin. Xander was recruited to put them in the air fryer so they would be done when I returned home from the girls’ practices. I prefer the air fryer over the microwave but when in a time crunch, the microwave works just fine.

If you looked closely at the pictures, you’ll notice that one of the potatoes I have out is a russett instead of a sweet potato. Sweet potatoes are not Lexie’s favorite. Usually she’d eat it anyways (because that’s all I’d make) but today, I only had three sweet potatoes left. She lucked out tonight and was surprised with a russett instead.

Speaking of sweet potatoes, tonight’s meal was the last of my sweet potato stash. Jewel had a sale back in November…sweet potatoes were 7 cents a pound! 7 CENTS! There was a limit of 15 pounds so I bought 14.95 pounds for a whopping $1.04! Some of the digital download coupons they offer are incredible deals….this was one of them!
