Twice Baked Sweet Potato

This Twice Baked Sweet Potato pairs sweet and tangy goat cheese with sharp pepper and creamy blended sweet potato.  Sprinkle on additional salty and sweet toppings to easily complete this fun and festive side dish.


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Rinse potatoes with cool water. Place on a baking sheet and drizzle with oil and 1 tablespoon salt. Bake for 45 minutes or until fork tender. 
  3. Cut a 3-inch slit in top of each potato and scoop insides into a medium-sized bowl, reserve skins. Mash together with spinach, dried cranberries, pepper and remaining salt. Divide mixture into four portions and spoon into reserved skins.
  4. Top with crumbled goat cheese and bake for 10 minutes or until cheese has melted. Top with bacon, green onions, or nuts if desired.
