Loaded Goat Cheese Baked Sweet Potatoes

August 4, 2016

Goat cheese is one of our favorite cheeses to splurge on (compared to regular shredded mozzarella and cheddar types). A delightful application for it? Baked sweet potatoes. Along with spicy kale and crispy bacon? Even better.

A note on baking potatoes, I skip poking holes in the skin with a fork. I do not find it improves the texture and I think the only scenario it is worthwhile for is if you are in a pinch for time and need them to cook a bit faster.
