Sometimes simple dinners or lunches are the best, especially if they are both easy and delicious. This stuffed sweet potato is a go-to meal for my family. Pulled pork is something I make about once a month and I always make extra on purpose for leftovers. There is much you can do with pulled pork besides just a sandwich.
Pulled Pork Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
- 2 large sweet potatoes
- 2 cups (16 ounces) of pulled pork (homemade or store-bought)
- Salt and pepper
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Prepare your sweet potatoes by washing and drying them, then poking them 4-5 times with a fork. Place potatoes directly on your oven rack and bake for 1 hour or until a fork easily penetrates the potato halfway through. The bigger the potato, the longer it will need to bake.
- Remove potato from the oven, split it open lengthwise with a knife, fluff the potato a bit with a fork, and then sprinkle in a little salt and pepper. Top the potato with your heated pulled pork, sprinkle with scallions and enjoy.
- If you like cheese, feel free to sprinkle some over top. If calories are not a concern, you could add a bit of butter, brown sugar and cardamom to your potato prior to topping it with the pork. You can either make your own pulled pork or use store-bought.
