Do you love sweet potatoes? I know when i go out to dinner I love to order baked sweet potatoes as my side dish. I love it even more when I can get my potato loaded with all that creamy goodness!
Sweet potatoes were on sale a few weeks ago at Kroger so I stocked up on them and decided to make my own Loaded Baked Sweet Potato. My husband and I thought they were incredibly delicious. I served these scrumptious potatoes along side Crockpot Honey Rosemary Chicken.
