Prepare Delicious Whole Baked Sweet Potato Side Dish

What can be better than baked potato? Baked and stuffed sweet potato! Think layers of melty cheese, bacon, and freshly sliced green onion baked until perfection. A foodie dream come true.

Wash the potatoes with cold water and scrub and dry the potatoes with a paper towel or clean kitchen towel.

Place the potatoes on a baking dish lined with foil or parchment paper. Pierce small holes with a large fork or a knife all around the potatoes.

Bake 50-70 minutes. Let cool to touch. Cut about ¼ off of the top lengthwise and scoop out the sweet potato flesh. Don’t get too close to the skin.

Mash potatoes until your desired consistency. I like to leave it a bit chunky.

Top with bacon, half of cheese, green onions, paprika, salt, pepper, sour cream. Combine all and spoon back into the potato skins.

Top with remaining cheese and pop back in to the oven until cheese melts (5-10minutes).
