Buffalo Bacon Loaded Sweet Potato Skins
Set the oven for 175 C/ 350 F.
Clean the sweet potatoes thoroughly and, using a fork, make small wholes all over. Place on an oven tray and bake in the middle of the oven for 1 h - 1h 15 min, until fork tender. Then take them out and let rest for 5-10 minutes until cool enough to handle.
While the sweet potatoes are cooling, increase oven temperature to 225 C / 440 F and make the buffalo sauce by melting the butter and mixing in the hot sauce.
When cooled, cut the sweet potatoes in half and scrape most of the sweet potato out of the peel. Leave a layer about 0.5 cm or 0.2'' thick. Set the scraped out sweet potato aside for now.
Brush the inside of the sweet potato skins lightly with the buffalo sauce. Then place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes.
While the sweet potato skins are baking, fry the bacon. When done, place on a kitchen towel to remove some of the fat.
Bring out the sweet potato you removed from the skins and chop it roughly. Mix it into the buffalo sauce together with the bacon.
Bring out the sweet potato skins and fill them up with the bacon, sweet potato and buffalo sauce mixture. Top of with the shredded cheese and place back in the oven for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and golden.
When the sweet potato skins are finished, bring them out and top them with the blue cheese dressing. Serve immediately.
