DIRECTIONS

  1. Heat oven to 400 F.
  2. Pierce each sweet potato several times with a fork. Place them directly on the middle of the oven rack with a piece of foil on the rack below.
  3. Bake until the sweet potatoes are easily pierced with a knife and cooked through, about 45-60 minutes depending on size.
  4. Remove from oven and let stand until cool enough to handle.
  5. While the sweet potatoes are baking, make the topping.
  6. Mix together remaining ingredients in a small bowl and set aside until the sweet potatoes are done.
  7. Slice sweet potatoes lengthwise down the center to expose cooked insides, top with tzatziki and feta mixture and serve.
