Ingredients

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tbsp. flour
  • 3/4 c. milk
  • 4 ounces aged blue cheese crumbles, divided
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • Cayenne pepper, to taste
  • Dash of black pepper
  • 2 green onions, chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450° F. Wash sweet potatoes and poke a few holes in each one with a fork. Rub sweet potatoes with olive oil and place on microwave-safe plate; microwave on high for 8 minutes. Transfer to baking sheet in preheated oven; bake until tender, about 25 to 30 minutes.
  2. While sweet potatoes are baking, heat butter in a saucepan over medium heat until melted. Add flour and stir. When mixture thickens, gradually add milk. Stir until a thick sauce forms. Remove from heat and add 3 ounces blue cheese, salt, cayenne pepper and black pepper and stir to combine. Keep warm.
  3. To serve, slice fully cooked sweet potatoes lengthwise across the top; squeeze ends together to open the sweet potatoes. Pour cheese sauce over top, then garnish with remaining blue cheese and chopped green onion.
