  • 4 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 lb ground beef

  • 1/2 cup green onions chopped
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt

  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Line a baking sheet with foil and space apart the 4 potatoes evenly.
  • Bake for 45 minutes or until they are soft and cooked through.
  • 20 minutes before the potatoes are finished, brown the beef, stirring to break it into crumbles. Drain.

  • You can either cut open the potatoes and top with the beef mixture or skin the potatoes and mash them first.
  • I hope you enjoy this fairly easy but highly satisfying dinner!
