Sweet potato Ala Greek-Litsa!

So many ways to stuff sweet potatoes, and here is mine! 

You will need,

2 sweet potatoes

2 tbsp butter

1 cup Feta chunks more if you like 

1 cup Greek yogurt

3 sprigs of dill finely chopped

2 fresh green onions finely chopped

Bacon cooked and cut into little pieces as much as you like

Here is what to do!

Wash the potatoes and dry them well

Pock them with a fork all over

Microwave them for 7 minutes on high

Let them cool and cut them lengthwise but not all the way through!

With a fork loosen the potato and add the butter and a little salt and pepper

Continue with the Feta, yogurt dill and onion and last add the bacon

Be generous, if your potatoes are very big you might need more cheese

Your sweet potatoes ala Greek are ready to compliment your protein, fish, meat, poultry or if you are a vegetarian they are a complete meal!
