Baked Sweet Potato

This is a lovely alternative to using a normal potato for baking. I love twice baked jacket potatoes with a gorgeous crispy skin and cheese and ham or bacon and whatever's in the cupboard or fridge thrown in and then grilled for a couple of minutes. So so good.

Baked Sweet Potatoes (from The Ultimate Philadelphia Cookbook)
(Serves 2)
(8 WW ProPoints per serving)

2 medium sweet potatoes
50g extra light soft cheese
4 bacon medallions
6 cherry tomatoes, quartered

Preheat the oven to 200C. Prick the potatoes with a fork and microwave on high for 5 mins. Transfer the potatoes to the oven for 20 mins until cook through. Alternatively cook in the oven for about 45 mins until cooked through.

Cut the potatoes in half lengthways and scoop out the flesh with a spoon, keeping the skin intact, and mash with the soft cheese. Stir in the bacon and tomatoes and season with black pepper. Return the mash to the potato shells.

Heat the grill to medium. Place the potatoes under the grill until browned on top. Serve warm with a green salad.
