Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

I used to think of sweet potatoes only around Thanksgiving time, and ate them as a side dish with all the brown sugar and marshmallow toppings.  It’s becoming more common to find a restaurant that will serve a baked sweet potato as a side dish, but when it’s plain I have to slather on the butter and at least cinnamon to give it some more flavor.  This recipe, however, can serve as a main dish if you want it to be, and it is not lacking in the flavor department by any means.  We were skeptical that this would fill us up when I first made it, but were pleasantly surprised when we felt pretty stuffed after eating it by itself.  Not to mention, it has bacon crumbled on top, how can it not be good??  😉
