Baked Sweet Potatoes

I can't eat regular white potatoes, because they hurt my joints, but I can eat sweet potatoes! They are from a different family, therefore are not really considered a potato. This is my version of a baked potato! You can use yams too.


2 medium sweet potatoes
light sour cream or yogurt (or substitute)
bacon bits (fakin bacon, whatever)
green onions, chopped
light cheddar cheese (or substitute)
butter or margarine (or substitute)


Heat oven to 400 degrees. Pierce sweet potatoes with a fork, and then wrap in foil, place in oven on center rack. Cook for 60 minutes, or until soft all the way through. You can also leave off the foil, and just put them in the oven as they are. The skin will be crispier, like a regular baked potato. Place potatoes in a bowl, slice open, fluff the potatoes with a fork, and pile on the toppings!! Its better if you put the potatoes in a bowl, because sweet potatoes are a lot softer than white potatoes, and fall apart easier. Serves 2. Enjoy!
