Have you ever become obsessed with something from a restaurant? Did you try recreating it at home… or stalk the internet looking for recipe dups? Yeah, that’s me with the Jason’s Deli Papa Verde sweet potato.
I tried it for the first time last year and then went back again and again… until suddenly it was replaced with a different kind of potato. Apparently it is only a seasonal offering and yes, I almost cried.
But yes, really.
I realized back in December that the Papa Verde is back and I’ve been lusting after it ever since. This time, I decided to write down the ingredients so that I can recreate it at home.
The magical ingredients: roasted turkey breast, spinach, chopped avocado, butter, jalapeno ranch dressing, and asiago cheese on a baked sweet potato.
And now that I’ve tried making it at home… it’s not the same. I think maybe my potato-to-avocado ratio is off? Or my turkey-to-everything ratio? Or I need a different asiago cheese? Anyway, I’m still working on it because it’s only a matter of time before it goes off the menu again.
So now I’m wondering, do you have a restaurant meal or item that you have successfully duplicated at home?
