SIMPLE SWEET POTATO SKINS
Super Bowl Sunday is soon upon us. And I can honestly tell you, the only thing I'm rooting for is THE FOOD! (That's right I said it, and I'm sticking to it.) So in honor of the second biggest food consumption day (after Thanksgiving, of course) here's a super SIMPLE SWEET POTATO SKIN recipe that will for sure be a win on game day. I mean is there anything better than cheesy potatoes topped with bacon, sour cream, and green onions!?
So, traditional sweet potato skins are not complicated, but it's a process -- baking the potatoes, scooping out the insides... this all can take a significant amount of time and well, ain't nobody got time for that. What's my secret to cutting down on the effort and time needed for this delicious appetizer? The answer is Sweet PotaTOASTS.
What are Sweet PotaTOASTS?
Sweet PotaTOASTS are simply sliced sweet potatoes, that's it! They became popular as a bread substitute (likely for those who eat gluten-free) and topped just like toast, with PB or avocado, for example.
The best thing about these Sweet PotaTOASTS is that all the "work [is done] for you... which means all you have to do is pop it in the oven for a few minutes, top it, and enjoy." YESSS! And I don't hate that by subbing in these sweet potatoes, you're getting an excellent source of Vitamin A & C, as well as a good source of fiber and Vitamin B6.

SIMPLE ONE-POT WONTON SOUP RECIPE
I hope your New Year is off to an amazing start. The end of the year and the holidays are always about family for me, but it's also a lot about food to be honest. (And I'm not mad about it :)) One ongoing project my mom has been working on for me and my younger brother is a family recipe book filled with all her incredible culinary delights. Now I don't know if I'll be able to recreate these recipes to taste "just like mom's", but it will be treasured for sure!
While I was at home this past Christmas, mom of course spoiled us with lots of the dishes we love, but she also shared a new one -- for a quick lunch one day -- that I just couldn't keep to myself! (Something to note about my mom... she is the type of person who has that special skill of being able to throw ingredients together and the end product comes out amazing. Always.) Keep scrolling to learn the SIMPLE ONE-POT WONTON SOUP recipe from my mom -- featuring some standard pantry and freezer staples, including one of our favorite Costco products!
