I made this up one day when I didn't have much in the house except leftover ham and some already chopped, cooked onions.

Really easy and really tasty. I used turkey ham and no butter or anything. Really good way to get a healthy meal in myself (I had it for dinner) with a minimum of fuss. Thanks!

  1. Poke several holes in the sweet potato with a fork or knife.
  2. Cook the potato in the microwave for 6 -7 minutes on high, until done.
  3. In a small skillet or saucepan coated with cooking spray, cook onions and ham with lid on for about 3 minutes, then remove lid and cook until onions are softened and slightly browned.
  4. Split open the sweet potato and top with onion, ham, salt, pepper and butter to taste. De-e-elish!
