Big Green Egg Baked sweet potatoes with feta and parsley

Are you crazy about classic baked potatoes with crème fraiche and chives? Then get ready to mix things up with this recipe for baked sweet potatoes as a vegetarian side dish. And you’ll of course be preparing them on the Big Green Egg. It’s just as easy as using the oven, but it tastes so much better!


Sweet potatoes

  • 4 medium-sized sweet potatoes
  • 200 g feta cheese
  • ½ bunch of flat-leaf parsley


  1. Ignite the charcoal in the Big Green Egg and heat, with the convEGGtor and the grid, to a temperature of 180°C.


  1. Place the sweet potatoes on the grid and close the lid of the EGG. Bake the potatoes for about 90 minutes until soft. Meanwhile, cut the feta cheese into strips. Pluck and finely chop the parsley.
  2. Remove the sweet potatoes from the EGG and cut them lengthwise about two-thirds of the way through. Stuff them with the strips of feta cheese and sprinkle them with the finely-chopped parsley.


If you don’t have any sweet potatoes, or if you want to offer your guests a choice, you can prepare and stuff normal potatoes in exactly the same way. We recommend using floury potatoes for the best and most delicious results.
