Sweet Potato with Whipped Feta

This canapé ticks all the boxes (well most of them anyway): it has a choice of two toppings, one veggie and one not. The base is sweet potato, so it is gluten free.

What more could you want? Ingredients - makes 12 1 or 2 sweet potatoes (depending on size) 1 tsp olive oil 30g feta 15g cream cheese (full fat - I used Philadelphia) 1 salad onion or 1 small slice Parma ham (baked for 8-10 minutes at 18
