Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Whats better than a baked Sweet Potato? Give up?? Stuffing it with a yummy mix of fruits and nuts! Went great with a Roast Chicken on the grill!


Sweet Potatoes (1 half per person)
2 pears, peeled and diced
Pecans (or nut of choice)
2 tablespoons butter (I used soy)
1 tablespoon brown Sugar
2 tablespoons vinegar (I used cider but balsamic will work too)


Poke wholes in the sweet potatoes and bake on a foil lined baking sheet at 350 for about an hour until fork tender. Put craisins in a cup of hot water for about five minutes and then drain well. Meanwhile, in a saute pan melt butter and add pears. Cook until browned. Add cranberries, brown sugar, and vinegar.Reduce heat to low and cook until sauce begins to reduce. Add nuts and continue to cook on low. When ready, the stuffing will have a syrup like sauce. Cut potatoes in half and top with pear mixture. Enjoy!
