Loaded Greek Sweet Potatoes

loadedgreekpotatoes

HEALTHY & BENEFICIAL! MANY ways to make this. Over Sweet Potato Fries, over Baked Sweet Potatoes and Vegis (Options below)… But, here’s what we did:

Oil (Hot Chili Oil, Coconut, Olive Oil (What we used)… Any, works)
Sweet Potatoes, diced (Fry option below)
1 can Artichokes, drained
Black Olives, halved
Red Onions
Sprinkle Garlic Powder,  Pepper, Sea Salt (Optional, we skip salt)

Easy Greek Marinade (Or try Tay’s Greek Marinade):
Chicken
1T McCormick’s Gourmet GREEK Seasoning
1.5tsp McCormicks Montreal Steak Seasoning
2T Worcestershire
1tsp Dijon

Toppings:
Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
Tay’s Avocado Tzatziki (Below) (Or Guacamole)
Fresh Tomatoes
Crumbled Feta Cheese

DIRECTIONS: Marinade Chicken 4-8 hours. Toss Potatoes and Artichokes with a lil Oil (We used Olive). Place into Foil. Grill both Chicken and Potatoes (Separately). Add Potato mix to bowl. Top with Chicken. Top with Toppings and Cheese Mix. OR TOP ALL ONTO Pita Breads!

Tay’s Avocado Tzatziki:
1 Ripe Avocado, mashed
1/2c Sour Cream, or to taste
1-2T Mayo
1T Grated Parmasen Cheese
1tsp Lemon Juice (100% fridge kind)
1c Cucumber, peeled, seeded, grated
1/4tsp Garlic Powder
1/2tsp McCormick’s Gourmet Greek Seasoning
1/4tsp Dill Weed
1/8tsp Mustard Powder
1/8tsp Sea Salt


NOTES/OPTIONS:
 -Or, Marinade Chicken, cut up. Add Chicken, Potatoes, Artichokes, Onions, and Olives to baking dish. Bake. Top with Toppings.
 -Cut Sweet Potatoes to fries, toss with Oil, season. Bake. Cook rest (Together or separately up to you). Top all onto Fries.
 -Also, you can skip tzatziki and use Marinaded Cucumbers and Onions (Skip onions with vegis). Eat on Pitas, or over Sweet Potato Vegi Mix, or Sweet Potato Fries! Here’s a Sour Cream Cucumber and Onion Recipe I found:
2 cucumbers, thinly sliced
1/2 small white onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons white sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons dried dill, or to taste
1/2c Sour Cream, or to taste

Salt & Pepper Cucumber slices. I set into strainer in fridge for about 15minutes. Bring to boil, Vinegar, Water, and Sugar. Add Cukes to bowl. Pour over. Allow to marinate 1 hour.
Sour Cream Version: Drain, reserving 1-2T Marinade. Stir in 1/3c Sour Cream with reserved Marinade.

We used our leftover Tay’s Crock Pot Sweet n Spicy Chicken Recipe (Any Taco Meat will work).
Bread Bowls: I use freezer Bread Dough. I place in bowl (Earlier in day – To thaw), on a Warmer. Once thawed enough to handle, Sprinkle with Cumin and Oregano, Fold, Sprinkle again, fold… Keep doing til nicely seasoned, WELL! Cover, allowing to rise.
Heat Oil. Break off large piece. I had to improvise with a metal measuring cup. I dipped into oil to oil it (Helps with sticking) spread dough around it. Using tongs, deep fry to shape into a bowl form. Brown both side. Lay onto paper towels. Sprinkle with Garlic Powder.
Top bowls with Refried Beans, Taco Meat, Tay’s Guaca-HOLY MOLY! Sauce, Salsa, Shredded Cheese, Shredded Lettuce. Eat!

loadedpotatosoup


1T Salted Butter + Some to rub crock
6 Potatoes, SKIN ON, diced (Russet)
5-6 Slices Bacon, baked*, blended/minced
— 1/8tsp Bacon Grease
1/16 tsp Sea Salt
1/4tsp LAWRYS Seasonal Salt
1/4tsp Pepper
1/8tsp Garlic Powder
1/2T Parsley
1/4tsp McCormick Cajun
2T Grated Parmasen Cheese (Store shelf kind)
1tsp Fresh Garlic, minced
About 2.5tsp Garlic Chives, minced
5 Chicken Broth Cubes + 5c Water
A little shy of 1c Red Onion
1 Celery, cut long way and sliced small
1 small Carrot, grated
2 oz. Velveeta, cubed (Last hour)
1/2c Shredded Cheddar Cheese (Last hour)
1c Evaporated Milk (Last hour)

Bake bacon on foil in oven at 450 (No preheat) for about 12minutes. Butter Crock Lightly. Add potatoes. Sprinkle seasoning over. (I always let sit while I cut rest of vegis). Add rest to crock, EXCEPT velveeta, shredd. cheese, and milk. A little over an hour prior to serving, take out about 2/3 of potatoes and a little juice. Blend in blender. Add back to crock. Add cheeses and milk last hour. Last hour I turn to warm, stirring.
*Not sure if this matters, but, had to add the bacon later. Realized I didn’t have any and ended up adding halfway through.

Above soup was PERFECT! You can also add 1c Ham or Chicken to above recipe. But, before adding anything else. Eat this soup the way the recipe states. It’s great!
