Slow cooker jacket sweet potatoes are an easy, healthy, and filling way to cook up sweet potatoes for a meal. I served this delicious dish with homemade yogurt sauce.
What is a Jacket Sweet Potato and Why Should You Make Them?
Sweet potatoes are a healthy food that provides many benefits. They are rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. The natural sugars in them can help lower blood sugar levels and they are a good source of fiber. Sweet potatoes also have a low glycemic index, which means they won’t spike your blood sugar levels as white potatoes do.
Baked Sweet Potato Toppings:
To make a delicious and healthy vegetable side, you can sauté or steam some broccoli and mix it with shredded cheese before broiling, or just reheat it in the microwave.
Your Favorite Greek-ish salad:
Top a cut potato with feta cheese, olives, chopped onion, and a drizzle of dressing (herb to taste). Easy peasy!
Picadillo is a traditional Cuban dish of chopped boiled ham and vegetables like cumin, onion, garlic, and tomatoes. Cook it so that the flavors form into a colorful heart-shaped dish with olives on top.
Crumbled cooked bacon, drizzled honey, and a pinch of chile flakes (or just use hot honey if you’ve got it). If you don’t like bacon or want a veggie option substitute with crumbled drained ricotta.
Bring together butter, maple syrup, cinnamon, and sea salt. Mash in a few chunks of maple sugar then pour the mixture over your sweet potatoes.
