Loaded Baked Sweet Potatoes image


  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 2-4 slices of thick-cut bacon
  • 1 tablespoon butter (optional)
  • Flakey sea salt
  • Hood® Cottage Cheese with Chive
  • 2 scallions, sliced on the bias
  • Handful of cilantro, roughly chopped
  • Any other toppings, such as: black beans (drained and rinsed), leftover meat, shredded cheese, etc


  • STEP 1

    Preheat oven to 450°F.

  • STEP 2

    Poke each potato about 3-4 times with a fork or pairing knife. Nestle a cooling rack instead a sheet pan lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil for easier clean up. (Or can skip the rack if you don't have one)

  • STEP 3

    Bake for 45-60 minutes, or until easily pierced with a knife (or until internal temperature reaches 205°F).

  • STEP 4

    While potatoes are baking, slice bacon into lardons and cook in a medium frying pan over medium-high heat until crispy. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.

  • STEP 5

    When potatoes are ready to serve, carefully cut open the top of each potato. If using, add 1/2 Tbsp. butter and sprinkle with flakey sea salt. Fill each potato with desired amount of cottage cheese and sprinkle with desired toppings.
