Sweet potatoes (minus the sweet). These are best served hot! The inside mixture will cool things down so it's edible. Remember real butter. Temperatures are important because they create the textures. I hope you all enjoy! I have turned non-sweet potato eaters into sweet potato lovers with this recipe. If you're not into onions you can use celery.

  • 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.

I'm always looking for different uses for avocado and sweet potatoes so this seemed like the perfect experiment. I didn't have the red onions so I substituted with a shallot I don't think that made much of a difference but I will use the red onion next. I really liked the mixture of flavors and textures and would definitely make again. It's really such a simple mixture of ingredients that sound like an unusual mixture but I really enjoyed this recipe. Thanks for submitting. Read More

This was different and I thought it was good! I liked the sweetness of the potatoes w/ the flavors of the avocado mixture. I was worried how everything would work together but it was nice and a nice change from the usual. Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

I made this last night but highly nervous because the flavor combo seem crazy! I was so fantastic!!! My 14 year old daughter (soon picky) was so mad that I only made 1 sweet potato per person. Next time I am going to add blue chips and serve as a appetizer because it will be fantastic! So simple I just loved it! Read More

It was very good. You need more than 2 avocados though. I would say an avocado per potato Read More

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. Read More

I didn't believe it even after reading the reviews but this was good! I only had a half of an avocado but had store bought guacamole so mixed those two together. Really different and we like different in our house. Read More

Surprisingly this was good. However I'm only giving it four states because it kind of seemed like a waste of good avocados because the overall taste was mild like a sweet potato with a creamy butter on it. Read More
