Greek Stuffed Sweet Potato

I love stuffing a baked sweet potato and turning it into a meal! Our Taco Stuffed Sweet Potato is one of my favorites; and according to Instagram one of your faves too! Then we’ve got a Scrambled Egg Stuffed Sweet Potato and Festive Stuffed Sweet Potatoes also on the blog. Sometimes I even stuff them with yogurt, granola and berries for breakfast, So you know, just in case you needed one more option; I went Greek. 🙂

This recipe is fairly quick and easy! Besides waiting patiently for the sweet potato to bake, the prep work is pretty minimal. I buy pre-made tzatziki to make my life easier, however there are tons of great recipes with greek yogurt to make it yourself! If you’re in need of more protein, mix in some chicken sausage or pair with grilled chicken on the side.
