{NEW} Sloppy Joe Stuffed Sweet Potatoes ??? makes 4 servings

4 medium sweet potatoes/yams
1 Tbsp avocado oil, or olive oil
1 Tbsp avocado oil, or olive oil
1 lb. lean ground grass fed beef, or ground turkey
2 small bell peppers, colors of your choice, diced
2-3 fresh garlic cloves, minced

For the sauce:
4 Medjool dates, pitted and softened*see instructions below to see how to do that
15 oz. jar fire roasted tomatoes, with juices
2 Tbsps high quality balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp dijon mustard
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 Tbsp smoked paprika
sea salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste, about 1/4 teaspoon each
optional garnish ideas:
2 Tbsp fresh chopped parsley
2-4 strips cooked and crumbled nitrate free bacon
crisp dill pickles slices

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees f and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Fill a small saucepan halfway up with water, then bring to a rapid boil.
Remove from heat, then soak your dates in the very hot water for 10 minutes, until nice and plump, then strain and discard water.

Scrub and thoroughly rinse your sweet potatoes, then pat dry with a paper towel and lightly rub with oil.
Poke a potatoes a few times each with a fork, then place on your prepared baking sheet and bake until tender in the inside, about 40-45 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare your sauce by adding all the ingredients into a blender or food processor. Process until well combined and smooth.

Add 1 Tablespoon oil to a large skillet, then heat it over medium high heat. Add in the ground meat and cook until almost browned, breaking the meat with a wooden spoon as it’s cooking.

Stir into the skillet; bell peppers and minced garlic then cook for a few minutes more while stirring, then pour in the sloppy joe sauce you just made and simmer on low heat until reduced, about 8-10 minutes.
Once the potatoes are cooked, allow them to cool on the counter until safe to handle.

Slice each potato in half, carefully not to go all the way through, just creating a pocket. Stuff each with your sloppy joe mixture, then sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley, and crumbled bacon if desired.
