Sweet Potato Toppings Bar {Gluten Free}

Everyone loves a good baked potato bar with all the fixings so I thought why not try it with sweet potatoes! They were so tasty and the kids loved it. I'm not a fan of short order cooking for each family member. Sure I do it a bit at breakfast and lunch but dinner, sorry, "this is what we're all eating". Tonight's dinner was fun as it allowed each family member to personalize and create their own potato.  The kids and I enjoyed some tangy, creamy goat cheese on ours!   Bake off some sweet potatoes and fix up some scrumptious toppings {get the kids in the kitchen to help} and you're set. Enjoy!

1. Preheat oven to 400'F.  Scrub sweet potatoes well under running water, place on a baking sheet
      {I like to use a Silpat or piece of foil to make clean up easier}
2. With a fork, stab each potato a few times on top to allow steam to escape
3. Bake in a 400'F oven for 45-60 minutes, depending on the size of your potatoes, until soft and knife tender
4. While the potatoes bake, get some helpers in the kitchen to chop, stir and saute {with adult supervision of course}

5. Arrange toppings in small bowls for everyone to make their own
6. Slice each, slightly cooled, sweet potato in half lengthwise and top with your favorite toppings such as...

Topping ideas:
-steamed broccoli, green beans or asparagus
-sauteed mushrooms, zucchini
-goat cheese, cheddar cheese, blue cheese or sour cream
-diced bacon
-Canadian bacon pieces
-fresh chopped cilantro, diced onions or scallions
-sunflower seeds
-whatever you like
