4 Medium-sized PEI Russet potatoes

Cheese Sauce:
1½ cups cooked sweet potato (approx. 1 medium-sized)
1 cup water
3 tbsp tapioca starch
3 Tbsp nutritional yeast
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1½ tsp salt (or to taste)
1½ tsp white miso paste

BBQ Black Beans:

Baked Potatoes

  1. Position racks in middle and bottom thirds, then preheat your oven to 350F. Use a fork to poke 8 to 12 deep holes all over the spuds. Place potato directly onto the middle rack of the oven and position a baking sheet on the lower rack to catch any drippings.
  2. Bake 1 hour or until skin feels crisp, but the flesh beneath feels soft. Cut a slit through the spud down towards the middle without cutting all the way through and fluff up the flesh with a fork.

Cheesy Sauce

  1. Add the sweet potatoes and remaining cheese ingredients to a blender, and blend until smooth.
  2. Pour into a small saucepan and heat over medium-high heat while constantly stirring until you have a thick stretchy consistency.

BBQ Black Beans

  • In a saucepan over medium-low heat, add black beans and BBQ and simmer for 5 minutes while squishing with a fork some pieces.


  • Put in a ¼ cup of your BBQ Bean into your baked potato. Top off with your cheese sauce, chives, and bacon bits. Serve & enjoy!
