Cheesy Apple Baked Sweet Potato


I frequently find myself daydreaming of various 
random and creative food combinations to try...


Like this "Cheesy Apple Baked Sweet Potato" made by mixing 
1/2 cup cottage cheese, 1 medium diced apple, 1 tsp cinnamon, a
dash of stevia, and stuffing it into 1 large oven baked sweet potato


The difference between a randomly creative food combination idea and a 
horribly concocted thought, is all in the taste test; This one was a winner!



Questions: Do you ever come up with random 
food combinations and meals to make? Do they 
usually taste good, or sound better in your head?

It is an illness I have. My brain constantly works in this manner. This sounds like the perfect combination!

I think this sounds delicious! Too bad cottage cheese doesn't agree with me :( But chopped, baked apples sound delicious on top of a baked sweet potato!

I make weird combos, and I love them always :) But other people don't, like yesterday. I made burritos with beans, salsa and sweet potato, and my bf didn't like the potato in it. It was the best part!
Thanks for giving me this idea with the apple, sounds awesome!

is that a sweet potato? it looks unsweetened (ha). I think most things sound better in my head than when put into practice haha

Kelsey!
I think you should open up a sweet potato shop and have a menu with all your zillion creations! lol
You are too cute!

I think you should try melted marshmellows and maple syrup inside... mmmmmmm

Holy potato! Never thought to pair it up with cheesy apples. Great new combo :D

If I could eat cottage cheese I'd try this in a second...what a unique combination that somehow totally works! Delicious Kelsey!

A winning combination! Love it!

This sounds fabulous! Please don't ever stop coming up with all your creative dishes. :D

I'm not usually too creative with my meals... I tend to rely on others for that haha.

I love that combination! It sounds so good.
My weird food combinations usually taste good to me, but other people think I'm nuts. My sister and I make this yogurt concoction using cereal, peanut butter, jam, and tons of mix ins (whatever we're in the mood for). I guess it is kind of like what bloggers call a yogurt mess, but most people in the real world think it looks like vomit. Anyway, I haven't made my yogurt concoction in forever, technically my naturopath banned me from eating yogurt and peanuts and sugar (jam) and wheat (cereal) so basically im allergic to it :( but now im craving it!

Random food combinations are the best! I've yet to make one that I didn't like. :) This looks amazing! I've definitely never had apples with my sweet potato before.

Kristin said... [reply]

This looks good enough to be dessert!

How come your sweet potato is not orange colored :-P the creations sounds so much fun!I have lot of random creations...some of them are delicious , but some of them...I have to throw away :-)

missymiller said... [reply]

Keep dreaming girl! You got skillios.
I bet you could make a similar muffin outta that....

emily said... [reply]

That looks really good! I think all my recipe creations are random! Random ideas with this and that thrown together make the best recipes!!! Ive only had a few that were terrible...but 98% a success!!! I will try your sweet potato recipe!

Lissey said... [reply]

yum!! what brand of cottage cheese do you use? some taste "funky" to me!
also: do you bake or cook your apples at all?
love random combos! this looks like a win :)

Kath (My Funny Little Life) said... [reply]

Ha, it looks like you've found a new (favorite?) way to eat sweet potatoes - filled with awesomeness! :)

carascravings said... [reply]

I think I would love this combination...I already know that my husband would hate it. It would have to be one of those things I make when he is not around. He really dislikes the sweet and savory mix...not that sweet potatoes are savory, but still.
Thanks for sharing your cool combination.

I love everything about this except the cottage cheese... one of like two foods that I don't like, lol! ;)

Yum! I'm obsessed with sweet potatoes. I literally eat at least 5 a week. I must try this tomorrow night :)
