Sweet Potato Skins

Sweet Potato Skins


  • 4 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • ½ of 1 small sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, chopped
  • 4 slices turkey bacon, chopped
  • 2/3 cup reduced-fat, sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. chives, chopped


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Bake sweet potatoes for 30–40 minutes or until tender.
  • Cut sweet potatoes into quarters and scoop out about half of the insides (save the extras for leftovers!)
  • On a baking sheet, arrange potatoes so they are skin-side down and bake for 10 minutes or until crispy.
  • While skins are baking, heat olive oil in pan and sauté onion, garlic and turkey bacon.
  • Stir cheese and chives into the onion & bacon mixture.
  • Spoon everything into skins and return to oven for another 1–2 minutes or until cheese is melted!
  • Enjoy!


Top with 1 Tbsp. of plain Greek yogurt to cool it down!
