A few days ago I found out that bacon bits are vegan. YES YOU READ THAT RIGHT: BACON BITS ARE VEGAN. (At least most brands are but always check the ingredients to be sure.) So I bought some and got down to business making a loaded sweet potato, and holy crap it is so good. The ultimate fall comfort food: warm, filling, cheesy, sweet, and salty. Oh, and super quick and easy to make. Start by baking your sweet potato as you would a normal potato- stab it a few times and throw it in the microwave for 8 to 12 minutes, depending on the size of the potato and microwave wattage. Then, cut it in half and place a couple of Daiya cheddar slices on each side and let them melt. You can throw it back in the microwave for a few seconds or press the potato sides back together to help the cheese melt faster.
And voilá! You’re ready to eat.
