Stuffed Batata Recipe Vegetarian Cooking Buenos Aires

Brooke uncovered a blog recipe treasure and passed along the post for An Idaho Sunrise Egg Stuffed Potatoes.  I found it to be a particularly clever recipe and set out to replicate it.  It is essentially scrambled eggs with veggies inside a sweet potato shell, topped with melted, gooey cheese.  For vegetarian recipes, this is about as good as it gets.  I love that this recipe can be altered to utilize to a wide variety of ingredients.  A sweet potato, a regular potato or even a zapallo would make a good shell.  Other potential ingredient combinations could vary from blue cheese, leeks and pancetta to caramelized onions and brie.  The possibilities are endless.  I kept it simple with green onion, red pepper and reggiano.

Ingredients for two servings:

  • Two batatas, or sweet potatoes
  • Two eggs
  • One green onion, diced
  •  1/4 cup of red pepper, finely chopped
  • Shredded cheese.  I used reggiano, but would have preferred blue cheese, had it been available in my corner market.
  • Salt, pepper, cayenne to taste

Directions:

  1. Wash the sweet potatoes and puncture the skin with a fork several times.   Bake at 350° for 40 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the egg with the onion, pepper and seasonings.
  3. When the batata is cooked, slice the top layer from the batata, and using a spoon, hollow out the insides.
  4. Pour the egg mixture into the hollowed out space, and return to the oven for 12 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle cheese on top and bake until it is bubbles.  Enjoy!
