Cinnamon Baked Sweet Potato

My hubby likes sweet potatoes.  I have to admit, I'm not a huge fan of them myself - usually.  I don't particularly like sweet potato chips or sweet potato fries, but I do enjoy the classic "holiday" sweet potatoes topped with marshmallows.  I guess I like my sweet potatoes to be sweet and not at all salty.  This easy side dish is reminiscent of those holiday sweet potatoes.  It makes a pretty good lunch, as well!

  • 1 medium sweet potato
  • 2 wedges of Laughing Cow cinnamon cream cheese
  • I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! spray

Pan Insert to Use:  Base Unit

Servings:  1-2

1. Preheat grill. If using the Xpress Platinum, preheat at setting 2.
2. Spritz pan insert with non-stick spray.
3. Cut ends off of sweet potato, so that it will fit into the grill properly.  Cut in half lengthwise.
4. Spray all sides of sweet potato with butter spray.

5. Place potatoes (cut side down) into the grill and close lid.  Cook for about 5 minutes.

6. Flip potatoes and cook for another 10 minutes with lid closed.

7. Remove potatoes from the grill, mash with a fork, and top each half with 1 wedge of cinnamon cream cheese.
8.  Allow sweet potato to cool a bit before eating.
