You'll get tons of flavor in each bite of this sweet potato. The recipe uses two types of cheese -- cheddar and cottage cheese -- and a twice-baked method. Reach for lower-sodium cottage cheese to limit your salt intake and support good cardiovascular health.



1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Pierce the sweet potato skin using a fork, 6 to 7 times. Bake on a baking sheet for 45 to 60 minutes, until the flesh is tender.
3. Slice the potato in half, lengthwise, and use a spoon to scoop out the flesh.
4. Combine the sweet potato flesh, cottage cheese, half the cheddar cheese and black pepper in a mixing bowl.
5. Transfer the sweet potato skins to a greased casserole dish. Spoon the filling back into the potato skins, sprinkle the remaining cheddar on top of each half.
6. Bake an additional 15 to 20 minutes, until hot throughout. Serve immediately.
