My family loves regular potato skins, but I thought I would try something with sweet potatoes instead. Although we usually enjoy them as a snack, the change-of-pace appetizers make an excellent side dish. —Deborah Puette, Lilburn, Georgia

Ingredients

  • 3 large sweet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 5 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Gouda cheese
  • Sour cream

Directions

Scrub and pierce sweet potatoes. Microwave on high for 4-6 minutes or until almost tender. When cool enough to handle, cut each potato lengthwise into 4 wedges.
Place a 28-in. x 18-in. piece of heavy-duty foil on a large baking sheet. Arrange potatoes in a single layer on foil. Brush with butter; sprinkle with salt and drizzle with honey. Top with a second large piece of foil. Bring edges of foil together; crimp to seal, forming a large domed packet.
Bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes or just until fork tender. Carefully uncover; sprinkle with green onions. Broil 4-6 in. from the heat for 4 minutes. Sprinkle with bacon, cranberries and cheese. Broil 1-2 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Serve with sour cream. Yield: 1 dozen.
