- Make the tzatziki sauce.
- When the sweet potatoes are soft and done baking, let them cool until you are able to touch them. Cut the sweet potatoes in half with a sharp knife. Place sweet potatoes on a plate or in a bowl. To make room for the filling, smash down the sweet potatoes with a fork. Top each sweet potato half evenly with the Greek filling. Add a dollop of Tzatziki sauce. Serve immediately.
