Apple Bacon Stuffed Sweet Potato
It’s time to get excited about sweet potato season. Instead of eating sweet potatoes plain (yet still delicious), try stuffing them. Sweet potatoes are full of vitamins and beta-carotene, which makes it the healthier option when it comes to potatoes. It’s so rare that something sweet can be healthy so take advantage of it by microwaving, boiling or baking sweet potatoes. Treat yourself and eat it as a snack or a side anytime of the day.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes
1 sweet potato
1 slice (turkey) bacon, chopped
1 apple, diced
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2. Bake for 45 minutes at 350°F until potato is soft inside. Unwrap foil and cut a slit down the middle of each sweet potato. Let sit until cool enough to handle. (If you don’t have an oven, you can microwave it in a microwave-safe plate for 6 minutes).
3. While potatoes are baking, heat a skillet over medium heat. Add bacon and cook until crispy and place on a paper towel to drain.
