Simple Sweet Potatoes
Ingredients1 h 55 m servings 681 cals
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
- Make a long, narrow cut lengthwise down the center of each sweet potato. Wrap each potato in aluminum foil.
- Bake potatoes directly on the rack of the preheated oven until tender, about 1 hour.
- Mash avocado flesh, salt, and pepper together in a bowl with a fork until mostly smooth. Fold onion into avocado mixture. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled, about 45 minutes.
- Remove potatoes from foil and slice open, pushing the two ends of each together to open the potato. Divide 1/2 of the butter between the potato openings. Spoon avocado mixture into each potato and top each with remaining butter.

It was very good. You need more than 2 avocados though. I would say an avocado per potato
This odd combination is scrumptious! I've made it several times now, the only change is the addition of Tony's Seasoning to the guacamole.
