I have an especially soft spot for easy, cheesy recipe. With leftovers from my perfect cheese board, I’ve whipped up a quick holiday side dish, or something to super pretty to serve for a New Year’s Day brunch. (For more cheesy recipes, pop over to Cheesy Bake-and-Broil Pasta and Jam and Cheese Crepes.)
Blue Cheese-Baked Sweet Potatoes
Wrap sweet potatoes in foil and bake in a 350º oven for about 45 minutes, or until a fork easily pierces the flesh all the way to the center of the potato.
Take a few slices out of the top of the potato and push some blue cheese into the crevice. Broil for a few minutes to melt and brown.
Serve as is, or with a short pour of maple syrup or a quick chop of pecans.
