Directions

BAKING THE POTATOES

Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
Line a baking sheet (the sweet potatoes tend to ooze as they cook so it makes it easier to clean up afterwards).
Place the raw potatoes into the oven and cook for 20mins.
Remove the hot potatoes from the oven and cut a slit down the middle of each one. (They will be very hot inside, so before you begin, let the steam come out so you don’t burn your fingers).
Using a fork fluff up the inside, then add 1/5 of the Butter, Salt and Pepper and then continue fluffing to mix it in.
Taking 1/5 of the Goats Cheese log, stuff the open top of the potato, get as much cheese in as you can. Then season the top with Salt and Pepper again.
Return to the oven for a further 10-15mins (I use a grill to colour the top during this cook).
