Sloppy Joe-Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with BBQ Ranch Dressing

This comforting, substantial recipe makes a fantastic post-workout meal when you’re ravenous, still a bit shaky and need a little boost of carbs, protein and fat to replenish. It’s also a great kids meal: ideal for sleepovers, a once-in-a-while dinner in front of the television, or even a summertime meal around the campfire—precook the sweet potatoes at home and wrap them in foil, warm the sloppy joe sauce in a pot on a hibachi or other portable grill, and assemble in front of the fire.

Remember when a plain baked potato paired with a diet soda was considered “diet” food? LOL. Our souped-up spud provides a far more nourishing meal for active adults and kids. It’s as craveable as the cheesy, bacon-topped tater skins you can find at pub happy hours and chain restaurants, but, arguably, much more delicious. It’s layer upon layer upon layer of flavor.

  • Bake until tender, about 45 minutes.
