Cheesey Tuna Sweet Potato Skins

Serves 4-8 Prep Time 20 minutes   Cook Time 1 hours 15 minutes   Rated:

I loved this recipe when it first came about. And to be honest, I haven’t made it again, but in entering it onto the site I am re-inspired!

The recipe appears in Nifty But Thrifty, that cute little family meals/snacks book that can help you save money whilst still feeding your hungry hoardes to their satisfaction!!

It is completely perfect for a mid week, after school/sports training/piano/dance/tutoring night family meal.

You can increase the yield of this recipe very easily by adding extra sweet potatoes and you could certainly go regular potatoes, or even pumpkin or eggplant instead. (You’re welcome!!)
