Roasted Cranberry Pancetta Sweet Potato Skins

Roasted Cranberry Pancetta Sweet Potato Skins

It’s day three of “Thanksgiving Week” on LLB and to say I’m a big fan of sweet potatoes would be a total understatement. Although this wasn’t always the case.

Growing up in “meat and potatoes land”, AKA Oklahoma, I pretty much stuck with the good ‘ol russet potato, baked, fried, mashed, anyway it was cooked I liked it, but sweet potatoes were something I just wasn’t into… this was until I got older, and much, much wiser and realized how amazing they are!

Now, one of my favorite ways to eat sweet potatoes are sweet potato skins. I’ve filled them with Turkey Chili for game day and last Thanksgiving I filled them with Sage Pesto and Bacon, YUM!

Cranberry Goat Cheese Ball

Cranberry Goat Cheese Ball

There might be nothing I love more in life than cheese…. ok, maybe my Mom and Dad and the movie Elf, but that’s about it. Everything else comes second to my obsessive love of CHEESE!

For my annual Christmas Birthday Cocktail Party I decided to make the Buffalo Cheese Ball from my cookbook “Buffalo Style“. I decided that the savory cheese ball needed a sweeter counterpart, therefore the Cranberry Goat Cheese Ball was born!

There’s basically nothing I love more than grilling.  When I was notified that I must remove the grill from my balcony last year by my buildings HOA I almost cried (actually I might have cried… a little!)

I may or may not have snuck it back out there for the last 6 months, but luckily if that ever happens again I’m covered! I am now the proud owner of an indoor T-fal OptiGrill!

Oh how I love thee, Cranberry Pomegranate Waffles, let me count the ways!

This amazing creation came together from a few different sources. I first had the idea to combine the two fall fruits into mini pies, then I got hungry for breakfast and my pies almost became pancakes, then I saw my belgium waffle maker sitting in the corner of a cabinet collecting dust, and that’s how my pancakes became waffles!

And here it is, in all it’s glory, the waffle maker I purchased while living in the dorms at San Diego State.  Yes, I owned a waffle maker in the dorms.  Yes,  I was the only person in the dorms with a waffle iron. Yes, I used to make chocolate chip waffles in the dorms and you could smell them all the way at the other end of the floor.  I had college kids coming out of the woodwork to get in on those chocolate chip waffles!

Pretty sure I was breaking all kinds of rules by having a waffle maker in my dorm room, but those chocolate chip waffles were so worth it! What can I say?  I like living on the edge 😉

Open it up and boom, delicious-town awaits you!

These would be perfect to make on Thanksgiving or Christmas morning. You can make as much batter as you need for 4 or 20 and let people make their own waffles as they arrive (or awake!)

The fruit in these waffles is very tart, so I dusted them with cinnamon and powdered sugar to add some sweetness!

I threw some extra cranberries on top for color, totally optional, but looks very pretty 🙂
