This is a great way to enjoy sweet potatoes, without adding loads of sugar & butter. It is a different, not-so-sweet recipe that uses our Ranch Blend and a touch of Nutmeg Powder to flavor the sweet potato, mixed with spinach, and cream cheese. The stuffed potato is topped with creamy fontina cheese, bacon and French fried onions. Savory flavors that complement each other deliciously.

2 large sweet potatoes, baked whole
1/4 cup diced onion
