Just when you though baked potatoes couldn’t get any better, we added sweet BBQ pork, switched it out for a sweet potato, and topped it with melted cheese.
Just a small slice of heaven that you don’t have to feel guilty about. We’re starting January off strong with our favorite healthy recipes and we know you will love them just as much as we do.
I like to make this recipe on busy nights when I know we aren’t going to be home. I can make everything ahead of time, then assemble them when I get home.

how to bake a sweet potato
First things first, the baked potato. Have you ever tried cooking a sweet potato in the microwave? Once you try it you will never go back.
Start by piercing the potato with a fork a few times, then wrap with a damp paper towel. Microwave on high for about 7 minutes, and you’ll have a perfect potato every single time.
You can also wash them in water, wrap them in aluminum foil and bake at 400 degrees for 35 -40 minutes.
how to get your cheese and toppings perfectly melted
Slice your potato in half and top with some of the delicious barbecue pork. Top with green onions, mozzarella cheese, and a little more barbecue sauce.
Broil your potato on high for about 3 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
Eat immediately and enjoy. I always like to have a little barbecue sauce for dipping or for an extra drizzle on top, but I’m a sauce person.
