These Pulled Pork Stuffed Sweet Potatoes are my new obsession, related to my general obsession with sweet potatoes! I realized that now, every time I go grocery shopping, I buy more and more of them.

At the beginning, it was just two or three: enough for one maybe two meals in 10 days. And clearly that’s not enough, right? So now I buy at least 4 huge ones to keep me satisfied until my next trip to the store. But no matter what I do, there’s always a shortage. So now tell me, who comes at night eating my sweet potatoes??

One of the many ways I like my these healthy spuds is as baked stuffed sweet potatoes loaded with a yummy filling. Sounds perfect, doesn’t it?

Plus, making stuffed sweet potatoes is a great way to use leftover pulled pork or whatever leftovers you have in the fridge.

Trust me, these Pulled Pork Stuffed Sweet Potatoes are a must-try! They are healthy, filling, high-protein and they make a delicious comforting meal your whole family will love!

Ingredients

  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 2 cups Apple and Onion Pulled Pork
  • 1/2 cup apple peeled and cubed
  • 1/4 cup stock I used beef but you can use chicken or vegetables
  • 1/2 shredded cheese of your choice optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Pierce sweet potatoes with a fork and bake them for about 45 minutes. Turn over potatoes halfway through baking. If you prefer to use the microwave, cook them on high for 6-8 minutes. Turn over potatoes halfway through cooking.
  3. Let them cool enough to be able to handle them. Cut them lengthwise and scoop out most of the flesh, leaving a 1/4 inch thick skin.
  4. In a bowl, combine flesh, apple and onion pulled pork, apple cubes and stock. Mix well to combine.

  5. Fill sweet potatoes with pulled pork mixture and top with shredded cheese.
  6. Arrange potato skins on a lined baking sheet or baking dish. Bake for 10 minutes and serve.

  1. I just logged on here from your website. I read a post on FB from my sister who reposted the photo for the frozen banana/peanut butter treats. That site is The Nourished Life. I am happy I followed this path because now I found your site.

  2. These were amazing! I had leftover pulled pork and didn’t just want sandwiches and this was perfect as I had sweet potatoes lying around as well. I topped them with chopped green onions and the tanginess really went well with the sweetness of the bbq in the pulled pork. Would definitely cook again, YUM!

    1. I would serve them with mashed potatoes or mashed cauliflower and/or a mixed salad, green beans or your favorite green!
