What could possibly be sweeter than sweet potatoes (besides that pun)? Sweet potatoes stuffed with cranberry cinnamon goat cheese, that’s what! Inspired by this recipe I found via Pinterest—Roasted grape, goat cheese, and honey stuffed sweet potatoes—but less fancy, not as time-consuming, and perfect for one person.
I was all set to hit this recipe head-on, ingredient for ingredient (we all know how much I like to ad-lib) until I began looking for the goat cheese and saw this:
Hmm, goat cheese with cranberries and cinnamon…like, together? WIN. To Wegmans’ amazing cheese selection: this Wisconsinite thanks you, not only for the cheese, but for making this cooking venture infinitely easier! Two ingredients. That’s it. Easy cheesy (c’mon, you know you’d be disappointed if I didn’t make that comment)!

– One sweet potato
– Cranberry cinnamon goat cheese (Trader Joes makes an excellent cranberry goat cheese, btw)
Cook the sweet potato however you’d like. I’ve been using the microwave because I’m usually under a time constraint and insanely hungry (stab the sweet potato a few times, put it in a bowl, and add some water; cook for about 8-ish minutes on high, rotating after about 4 minutes). Once the sweet potato is done, slit open the top and mix the inside up a little bit. Add a slice of goat cheese on top and voila!
The goat cheese will slowly melt and you’ll end up with something like this, nom, nom!
