Loaded Sweet Potato
Colby Sorensen, Iowa Farm Bureau Wellness Specialist
1/2 medium onion (yellow or white)
Chop up bell pepper and onion to desired size. Brown the beef (season as desired). In a separate pan, oil as needed, and sauté chopped up vegetables. Pierce sweet potatoes with a fork or knife and microwave as per directions on wrapping. When the meat is browned and vegetables have softened, combine in one pan, and stir together. Set the heat to low to keep meat and vegetables warm until sweet potatoes are done cooking. When the potatoes are ready, carefully cut them open, sprinkle 1/3 cup of cheese to each, and add 2.5 ounces of plain Greek yogurt. Add meat and vegetables. Enjoy!
French Dip Sandwich
Place ingredients in a crock pot, and cook for 5 to 6 hours on high. Slice the bread in half, and butter the top of each piece. Toast the bread, and add a slice of provolone cheese on top and toast again until cheese is melted. Put the juice from the crock pot in a small bowl for dipping.
