Okay, it’s always so hard (or used to be for me, at least) to bake a sweet potato perfectly.
This may not be news to you all, but I’m sharing it anyway. This was my realization on the “perfect” way to bake and top a sweet potato.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Create a little foil “nest” for medium sized sweet potato to sit in while on cooking sheet. Wash and dry outside of potato and place onto foil.
Bake for 45-50 minutes or until soft to touch.
When finished baking, remove from oven and slice down the center. (The skin should not be touching the insides of the potato, it will almost be caramelized/very soft looking.)
Fill the slice with goat cheese and leftover bacon chopped up.
