YUM! These are a healthier alternative to regular potato skins.
You will need:
4 medium sweet potatoes (about 2 pounds total), scrubbe
d and dried
1 tablespoon olive oil
Kosher salt and ground pepper
1/4 cup low-fat buttermilk
1/4 teaspoon sweet paprika, plus more for garnish

1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
1 scallion, sliced, for garnish
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Rub sweet potatoes with oil; season with salt and pepper. Bake until tender, 40 to 45 minutes. Let cool on sheet (keep oven on). Halve sweet potatoes vertically. Scoop out 1/3 cup flesh from each half into a medium bowl. Add buttermilk and paprika to bowl. Mash until smooth; season with salt and pepper. Stuff sweet-potato skins with filling. Arrange sweet-potato skins on sheet; bake until lightly browned around edges, about 15 minutes.
If you're going to use the bacon, cook it over medium until crisp - 5 to 8 minutes. Drain on a paper-towel-lined plate; crumble. Stir together sour cream and 2 tablespoons water; drizzle over sweet-potato skins. Garnish with bacon, paprika, and scallion; cut in half to serv

Making french fries at home couldn't be easier. All you need is a pot, vegetable oil, a brown grocery bag, kosher salt and the potatoes.
Cut your potatoes vertically into pieces. Heat your vegetable oil on high until very hot. Throw the slices potatoes in and cook for about 10 minutes. Take them out of the oil with tongs and thrown them into the brown bag. Add salt, close the bag, shake and voila!
