Sweet Potato with Garlic Herb Cheese

I never thought about putting cheese with a sweet potato, but this makes a real treat! I created a filling, yet low calorie lunch by pairing it with a grilled chicken breast (4oz) and cantaloupe (a total of 335 calories and 4.3 g. fat).

Sweet Potato with Garlic Herb Cheese

12 oz Sweet Potato
2 wedges of Laughing Cow Light Garlic and Herb cheese

Clean and prick the potato with a fork. Place in a baking dish and cover with a paper towel. Bake the potato in the microwave about 5-10 minutes, flipping after about 5 minutes.

Slice the potato in half. Cut each half open and spread a wedge of cheese inside.

Makes two 6 ounce servings.
