25 Easy Recipes for Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Stuffed sweet potatoes or loaded sweet potatoes are an easy way to switch up your lunch or dinner routine from baked potatoes with toppings. Serve a sweet potato bar where everyone can grab their own toppings for game day or a birthday party. Make extra sweet potatoes, so you’ll have easy lunches for the next couple of days.

There are lots of classic options here, such as buffalo chicken, chili, and chicken pesto as well as more unusual flavors, such as cranberry apple and quinoa with spinach. There are meat and vegetarian recipes with endless possibilities for customization.

Please note that there are a few twice-baked sweet potato recipes in this round-up, which do take a little more time. Make sure to plan accordingly.
