Sweet Potato Skins

Idea from here: http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2015/01/22/loaded-baked-sweet-potato-skins Yes, it’s a pretty basic recipe. Those are my favorite though, since it makes me feel like even I could handle it. Ha!

(serves 6)

3 yams or sweet potatoes
oil (we use Pompeiian usually)
cheese/toppings of choice

Poke a few holes around each potato with a fork. Preheat oven to 400F place potatoes on a tray or baking dish, and bake for one hour. Once the potatoes are done, slice each in half lengthwise and scoop out about 2/3 of the flesh (save this scooped-out flesh). Preheat oven to 430 F, and brush the skins with oil. Place on a baking sheet. Bake 15 minutes, then remove from the oven and re-stuff with filling. You can also add cheese (Sargento 4 Cheese, or Crystal Farms.. Daiya for the dairy-free little dude) at this time. Place under the broiler, and broil 3-4 minutes or until cheese shreds have melted.

I have a feeling that in addition to the cheese, I’d stir in a little garlic, maybe some cut up bacon or ham. 🙂
