1 cup turkey bacon, cooked, drained and crumbled

1 cup minimarshmallows

1 cup sweetened dried cranberries


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Pierce the sweet potatoes with a fork in several places.

3. Place potatoes about 2-inches apart on foil-lined baking pan. Bake 40 to 60 minutes or until the tip of a knife is easily inserted into potatoes.
