Sweet Potato Skins

Course Appetizer
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • 2 large sweet potatoes (We used Treasure Island)
  • 3 tsp maple syrup
  • pinch salt
  • 1/4 pound smoked turkey or chicken, shredded
  • 2-3 tbsp barbecue sauce
  • 3 oz. white cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 3 slices bacon, fried and crumbled
  • sour cream for serving, optional


  1. Wash and gently scrub potatoes. Trim ends to allow steam to escape, no pricking of skin needed. Cook in microwave 7-8 minutes until fork-tender. Cool.

  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees

  3. Cut each potato into quarters or wedges. Scoop out potato pulp. Note: we left the wedges whole for more potato in each bite.

  4. Place wedges/skins on foil-lined tray. Brush with butter and sprinkle with salt.

  5. Bake for 5-10 minutes until slightly crispy.

  6. Remove from oven, brush with maple syrup, sprinkle with Montreal steak seasoning, top with turkey or chicken, barbeque sauce, cheese and bacon.

  7. Bake for 5-10 minutes more until cheese is melted and bubbly.

  8. Serve immediately with sour cream, if desired.
