Servings 2


  • 2 medium sized sweet potatoes ~300 g each
  • 300 ml sour cream 1¼ cup, divided
  • 175 ml extra mature cheddar cheese ¾ cup, divided
  • 2 tbsp sriracha adjust the amount to your liking

Optional sides

  • fried halloumi cheese or bacon
  • cup lime yoghurt - 1yoghurt + 1 lime zest + lime juice from half


  • Heat the oven to 200°C (400°F)
  • Wash the sweet potatoes then pierce them a few times with a fork, heat on max heat in the micro for around 10 min (for 2 potatoes à 300 gram each but time varies with your micro and the potatoes you use). You know when they are ready if a thin stick can easily pierce the whole potato.
  • Take them out of the micro (careful, they are hot!) and cut them in half lengthwise
  • Scrape out the potatoes with a spoon and place in a bowl
  • Mash and mix with sriracha, half the sour cream and half the cheese
  • Place the skins on a baking sheet or oven form and fill them with the mixture. Top with the remaining cheese and bake for 5-10 min in the oven until cheese has melted.
  • Serve with sour cream and something salty like halloumi cheese or bacon.
