Baked Sweet Potatoes with Leeks and Gorgonzola
2 large sweet potatoes, scrubbed
1 large leek, washed and sliced
2 oz gorgonzola cheese, sliced
1 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste
1Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Dry the potatoes and rub with half of the olive oil. Place them on a baking sheet and sprinkle with salt. Bake for 1 hour or until tender.
2 Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a frying pan and add the sliced leeks. Cook for 3 – 4 minutes, or until softened and just beginning to turn golden.
3 Cut the potatoes in half lengthways and place them cut side up on the baking sheet. Top with the cooked leeks and season.
4 Lay the cheese slices on top and broil for 2 – 3 minutes until the cheese is bubbling.
