Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes with Bacon and Chives

  • Author: Girl Versus Dough
  • Prep Time: 20 mins
  • Cook Time: 1 hour 5 mins
  • Total Time: 1 hour 25 mins
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


  • 4 medium sweet potatoes, rinsed and scrubbed
  • 6 slices cooked bacon
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Poke sweet potatoes all over with a fork, then place on prepared baking sheet. Bake sweet potatoes 1 hour until soft and baked through. Set aside until cool enough to handle.
  2. Cut cooled sweet potatoes in half lengthwise, then use a spoon to scoop out pulp, leaving a 1/4-inch wall. Transfer pulp to a large bowl, and return sweet potato shells to baking sheet. Crumble 4 slices cooked bacon and add to bowl. Add sour cream and 1 tablespoon chopped chives. Stir to combine.
  3. Spoon filling into shells. Sprinkle tops with shredded cheese. Bake at 400 degrees F 5 to 10 minutes until cheese is melted. Top with remaining 2 slices bacon, crumbled, and remaining 1 tablespoon chopped chives.
