Ingredients
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Baking time: approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes
Cooling time: 15 minutes

4 sweet potatoes (8 ounces each), unpeeled
1 tablespoon reduced-calorie margarine
1/2 teaspoon brown sugar substitute
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple, canned in juice
2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
I cup miniature marshmallows

Directions
Yield: 8 stuffed potato halves
Serving size: 1 stuffed potato half

1 – Preheat oven to 400˚F. Wrap each sweet potato in foil, place on oven rack, and bake for one hour, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from oven and allow to cool 15 minutes. Cut each potato in half lengthwise and carefully scoop flesh into a bowl, leaving shells intact with 1/8–1/4 inch of flesh. Place shells in a baking dish and set aside. Using an electric mixer, mash flesh until smooth. Mix in margarine, brown sugar substitute, and spices. Drain pineapple well in a sieve, forcing out extra liquid with the back of a spoon.

Bison Steak Frites
Here’s a healthy twist on a bistro classic—Steak Frites. Bison steak is substituted for the beef steak, and the fries for baked sweet potatoes, served with a frisse salad garnished with blueberries.

Recipe Ingredients:
1 large sweet potato, sliced into 1/4 inch sticks
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground corriander
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
A pinch of cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil.
2 Bison ribeye steaks

Frisse Salad:
Watercress
2 tablepsoons cider vinegar
2 tablepsoons apple cider
1 1/2 tablepsoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1 tablespoon granulated garlic
1/4 cup safflower oil
Blueberries

Cooking Directions:
1 – In a large bowl combine the sweet potato, ginger, corriander, cinnamon, cumin, black pepper, salt, cloves, cardamom, and extra virgin olive oil. Then toss to evenly coat the fries.
2 – Spread them out evenly on a baking sheet and place in a preheated 425°F (220°C) oven. They should take about 30 to 35 minutes to cook.
3 – Brush the ribeye steaks with extra virgin olive oil so they don’t stick to the grill and season with cracked black pepper and salt–make sure you get both sides.
4 – Place the steaks on a preheated grill pan and cook for a total of 7 to 8 minutes, flipping once.
5 – While the steaks rest, assemble the frisse and watercress salad. Add the washed greens to a large bowl and combine with the cider vinegar, apple cider, brown sugar, celery seed, granulated garlic and safflower oil. Toss then season with salt and pepper.
6 – Plate the salad and garnish with fresh blueberries.
7 – When the potatoes are done, slice the steak. Remember when slicing the steak to cut against the grain–this ensures that the meat will stay tender and juicy.
8 – Add the sliced steak on top of the sweet potato and plate the salad.
Makes 2 servings.
