Barbecue, Bacon & Cheddar Stuffed Sweet Potatoes #InternationalBaconDay

 This dish is great for a lunch or a dinner, and you can easily make if from left over pork bbq or even from left rotisserie chicken. Bbq Cheddar & Bacon Stuffed Sweet Potatoes are so flexible!
 You can even put a few chicken breasts in a crockpot with bbq sauce all day and come home to put this dinner together. I love the flexibility!

Today I used leftover pork bbq for mine, and it is a family favorite way to use up bbq when there is a little bit left, and we are "sandwiched" out. no one complains when I put these on the table!
Sweet Potatoes

Feel free to just play around with the idea, both in ingredients and the baking, but I'll share with you how I put mine together. I often will do a combination of using the microwave and my oven to pull these together. But you can do all oven, or all microwave too.
