This is really good and never thought before to combine sweet potatoes with kale (also didn't know we could cook frozen kale in the oven!). We only made two stuffed potatoes for the two of us and we both enjoyed every bite. Thanks for sharing!

I'll be doing kale in the oven more in future as I really enjoyed the texture and the taste as it did not seem as bitter as it usually is but the whole dish was fantastic with the soft sweet potato, crunchy slightly bitter kale, crispy bacon, creamy sour cream and refreshing spring onion/scallion. I scaled back for 1 and my sweet potato was on the larger size and took 1 hour and 10 minutes to reach tender stage on the thick end with the kale going in at this point and all was perfection at the 1 hour and 1`5 minute mark and was enjoyed as a very enjoyable lunch though I ate more than expected as I thought I would only get through 1/2 but all that was left was just a little less than a quarter. Thank you Luvcookn, made for Billboard Recipe tag game.
