Baked Sweet Potatoes (how to bake the perfect sweet potato)
Litelife Meatless Jerky
When sweet potatoes are finished baking, remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes. Scoop most of the meat out of each sweet potato, making sure to leave the basic shape of each sweet potato in tact (you’ll re-stuff the sweet potato in a minute).
In a large mixing bowl, mix the sweet potato meat with tomato sauce, lemon juice, soy sauce, Tabasco sauce, horseradish and black pepper. Add ingredients in slowly and adjust to your taste. I like mine really acidic and spicy, so I added A LOT of the above. If you want to be more conservative, add just a few small spoonfuls of the bloody mary flavor per each sweet potato.
Return the bloody-married sweet potato meat to the hollowed-out sweet potato shells.
Assemble skewers: take your bloody mary fixins like green olives, pickles, jerky, etc. (whatever you prefer!) and layer on to the skewers. Place a skewer or two over each re-stuffed sweet potato. Serve alongside a beer chaser.
