Vidalia Sweet Potatoes

When my producer at the Today show mentioned her delicious sweet potato dish, my mouth was watering! Her version was meant for the grill but due to rain the weekend I got the recipe, I created an indoor version. I hope you love it as much as I do

Ingredients:
  • 1 medium sweet potato
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 large white onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons margarine, trans-fat free
Preparation:

Preheat the oven or toaster oven to 400° F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper; set aside.

With the tines of a fork, prick the potato several times. Microwave the potato on high for about 5 minutes.

Make a large, lengthwise slit down the center of the potato. Sprinkle potato with garlic powder and season with a pinch of salt. Press the onion slices inside, and top with the margarine.

Bake on the top rack of the oven for 9 – 10 minutes, until the onion begins to brown and the potato is tender when pierced with a fork. Serve immediately.
