Spicy Buffalo Loaded Sweet Potato Skins


5 sweet potatoes, scrubbed

Coconut oil and sea salt, for baking potatoes

8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

2 ½ Tbsp. ghee, melted

3 Tbsp. dairy free milk

1 Tbsp. spicy brown mustard

2-3 Tbsp. hot sauce, to taste

2 Tbsp. nutritional yeast, optional

½ teaspoon onion powder

½ teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon sea salt

¼ teaspoon black pepper

Fresh herbs or green onion to garnish



  1. Preheat oven to 400˚F, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Scrub sweet potatoes and dry well, then coat each one with a thin layer of coconut oil. Sprinkle each one with salt and bake for 45-55 minutes until soft on the inside and crisp outside. While the potatoes bake, cook, and crumble the bacon and prepare the other ingredients.
  3. Once potatoes are done, allow them to sit until cool enough to handle, then cut each one in half lengthwise.  Scoop out the inside of each potato into a bowl, leaving a ¼ “ layer inside of the skin.
  4. Using a pastry brush, coat inside of each potato skin with ghee, bacon fat, or coconut oil (thin layer) and sprinkle salt. Place face up on the same baking sheet and return to oven to bake 5 mins, then flip them (face down) and bake for another 5 minutes or until both sides are crisp.
  5. Mash the sweet potatoes in the bowl with ghee, dairy-free milk, mustard, hot sauce, nutritional yeast, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper. Adjust any seasonings to taste, then stir in half of the crumbled bacon.
  6. Spoon the mixture into the baked sweet potato skins and return to the oven for another 10 mins to heat through. Remove, then sprinkle on the rest of the bacon, fresh herbs or green onion, and additional hot sauce if desired. Serve and enjoy!

Patient Testimonials

Dr Don Sharnowski is a doctor who is above and beyond all other doctors! Probably his most outstanding quality is that he LISTENS to what his patients say. He is willing to explain things to his patients in terms they can understand. Dr Don treats his patients with wisdom, understanding, gentleness, care, encouragement and he is willing to "go the extra mile" to give his patients the proper treatment they need. He does not treat patients like they were on an assembly line or like he is rushing them out the door. Dr Don has fixed many of the problems I had at my first visit, one of which I had endured for 3 years. Dr Don was able to fix that problem in 2 weeks when others had not. Dr Don has also helped me loose 40 lbs so far. My total recovery is still an ongoing process, but should be a cinch with Dr Don's expert help! Thank you, Dr Don! You are an awesome answer to prayers!

Super Awesome Doctor in Overland Park, Kansas!! He really knows his stuff love his Holistic approach. Wish I lived closer so I could see him on the regular, at least we can chat on the regular! Very informative in all aspects of health! Five years ago this man took our health and turned it around 360 degrees. My son got ear infections very often. Both my boys have respiratory issues. My husband asthma and overweight. Myself aches and pains, specifically on my left side and joints. Well needless to say no more ear infections respiratory not nearly as often my husband is 80lbs less and never uses his inhaler . My sons ear infections...What ear infections...They are no longer! Thanks Dr. Don for all you do and have done!!

Lots of Love from The Stevens

Dr Don Sharnowski is truly an amazing Doctor. He listens to his patients and treats in a very complete way. He is very knowledgeable because he never stops learning. He is a great communicator and will help you learn better ways to be healthy if you will actually do what he teaches.

Don (Dr Sharnowski) is truly one of a kind. He is warm, inviting and incredibly generous with his time, but also really knowledgeable about the body and everything within. You won't find crystal balls here. You'll find a super nice guy in sneakers who also sells farm fresh eggs at the counter. I went in expecting to get adjusted (and was scared, because I'd never seen a chiro before). Instead, what I experienced was someone who actually sat down and listened to my history, connected the dots between several ailments (instead of jumping to prescribe one drug apiece to treat each one), and explained things that no one had ever taken the time to do. I was there about my back specifically, but we talked about my whole health. Instead of just prescribing an anti inflammatory (which is what my other doc did), he explained why we get inflammation in our bodies, and how to help reduce it with what we eat. I've also been on thyroid medication for over 10 years, and he actually explained what the thyroid is, and what the drug I take is, and what it does. But not in a defensive or overly crunchy way. He just openly explained in a way that I could understand it. I highly recommend Don to anyone with a body who wants to feel better. His approach is approachably holistic. Just common sense, whole body-centered treatment.
