Looking for a quick way to cook a sweet potato, want to know what to fill it with once cooked? Well your in the right spot. Cooking the sweet potato in the microwave will only take 10 minutes and it comes out soft and fluffy. You can then fill it with baked beans and the new flavour packed ham from D’Orsogna – Flame Roasted Carolina Style Sweet Dijon Mustard Leg Ham (available at the deli counter of your local Woolworths) that brings a delicious smoky sweet flavour to the dish. If your kids already enjoy sweet potato and baked beans then they should love this.
Both sweet potato and baked beans are high in fibre and low-gi which means this meal will keep you full for a sustained period of time. You will also be dosing up on extra vitamins and minerals which is a win win.
1 Sweet Potato, washed
50gm D’Orsogna Flame Roasted Sweet Dijon Mustard Leg Ham
1/2 Cup Baked Beans
1/4 Cup Mozzarella Cheese, grated
Optional: Italian Herbs
LET’S PUT IT ALL TOGETHER
- Pierce the sweet potato all over with a fork. Place on a microwave safe plate then into the microwave on high for approximately 10 minutes (depending on the size and how many you cook at once). It will be ready when it is soft to touch.
- Remove from the microwave and slice a thin top section off the sweet potato. Mash up the sweet potato on the larger side with a fork.
- Mix together the flame roasted ham with the baked beans and spoon onto the sweet potato. Top with cheese and microwave for 2 minutes to heat everything through and melt the cheese.
- Sprinkle on some Italian Herbs to serve.
