To make this nutrient rich food, cut the sweet potatoes in half and boil them in water until they are tender. Once the potatoes become tender, let them cool and cook the turkey bacon. Crumble the turkey bacon into pieces, and scoop out some of the insides of each sweet potato. Then evenly layer the cheese on top of each potato, followed by the bacon bits. On a baking sheet, bake the sweet potatoes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 minutes or until gold brown. Garnish the cooked sweet potato skins with thyme. This recipe serves ten.
