Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes & Bacon

I couldn't resist going back to my sweet potatoes & bacon mixture again.  This time instead of wrapping slices with bacon, I cooked and crumbled the bacon and put it in a twice baked form.  When you bite into it, first you get the sweetness of the brown sugar coming thru, then a smidgen of saltiness from the bacon, followed by a light heat from the cayenne.

Prick skin of sweet potato with a fork and microwave for 3 minutes.  Let

Cut the sweet potato in half, scoop out insides and put in a small bowl.
Add butter, brown sugar, cayenne and cinnamon and stir until mixed.  Add in
bacon pieces.


Place halves in a pan.  Fill each half with the sweet potato spiced
