  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • teaspoon salt
  • 2 ounces goat cheese chevre, crumbled

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and place a rack on top of the foil.
  • Pierce the sweet potatoes all over with a fork and place on the rack.
  • Bake the sweet potatoes until tender when pierced with a fork, 50 to 55 minutes.

  • Preheat the broiler.
  • Lightly brush both sides of each potato skin with canola oil, then place the potato skins on the rack, skin side up.
  • Broil until the skins are starting to turn crispy, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn them over, then broil for additional 1 to 2 minutes, or until the edges are starting to brown.
  • Sprinkler the pepper, salt, goat cheese and bacon evenly between the potato skins.
  • Broil until the cheese is starting to melt, about 2 minutes.
  • Garnish with green onions and serve.
