Iswwet potate with eggNGREDIENTS:

•4 large Sweet Potatoes, scrubbed
•2 slices all-natural turkey bacon
•1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
•2 cloves garlic, minced
•6 lightly packed cups baby spinach
•4 eggs
• 1/4 cup grated reduced-fat cheddar cheese
•1/4 cup diced red pepper
•1/4 tsp sea salt and ground pepper
•Nonstick cooking spray
•Nonfat Greek yogurt and scallions if desired

INSTRUCTIONS:
Step 1 – Preheat oven to 425˚F. Wrap sweet potatoes in tinfoil, prick in a few places with a fork and place on baking sheet. Bake for 50-60 minutes, turning once, until tender. Set aside to cool and reduce oven temperature to 350˚F.

Step 2 – Spray a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray, allow it to heat to medium low and add bacon. Cook for approximately 6 minutes, turning occasionally, until crisp. Transfer to a plate and dab with paper towel to remove excess oil. Chop bacon into small pieces.

Step 3 – Add onion, garlic and red pepper to skillet and sauté for approximately 3 minutes, until softened. Add spinach and sauté for approximately 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until wilted. Remove from heat.

Step 4 – Cut an oval into the top of each sweet potato and scoop out the inside using a spoon leaving a shell about 1/3-inch thick. (Keep sweet potato insides for future meals). Sprinkle inside with salt and pepper.

Step 5 – Divide spinach mixture and bacon evenly among potatoes. Carefully crack 1 egg into each potato and top with cheese, dividing evenly. Bake for approximately 20 minutes until thoroughly cooked.

If desired, combine yogurt and scallions and serve with potatoes.
