Stuffed Fluffy Sweet Potatoes

I love sweet poatoes more than any other potatoe, they are rich in fiber, much healthier than a white potato. These are whipped to perfection, fluffy and topped off with bacon..Yummy!!!!


4 medium sweet potatoes
1/4 cup milk or 1/4 cup half-and-half
1/4 cup butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
4-6 slices of bacon for the bacon bits
* Optional: A sprig of fresh parsley chopped for garnish


1. Chops the bacon into small pieces and fry until nice and crispy, drain and set asid
2  Preheat oven to 400degrees F.   Pierce sweet potatoes with fork and place on baking sheet.
3  Bake 50 minutes or until tender.
4  Reduce oven temperature to 350*.
5  Cut lengthwise slice off top of each potato.
6  Scoop out centers, leaving 1/8 inch thick shell.
7  In medium bowl, mash potato pulp.
8  Add milk, butter and brown sugar and bacon bits, beat til fluffy.
9  Spoon mixture back into shells.
10  Place shells in large shallow baking pan.
11  Bake at 350* for 10 minutes or until heated through. Garnish with chopped parsley.
