Sweet Potatoes with Blue Cheese & Bacon

If you like potato skins (and I have not found too many folks who do not) then chances are you will love this Sweet Potatoes with Blue Cheese & Bacon recipe. With healthy New Years resolutions, not much can beat the sweet potato in both nutrients & flavor. The small amount of fat from the cheese & bacon add tons of flavor.
