Cook bacon in large skillet. When crisp, remove from pan. Pour off bacon grease, leaving 1 Tbsp grease and meat drippings.
Turn heat to low. Add spinach to pan with bacon grease. Stir, letting cook just until wilted.
When wilted, remove spinach and place on paper towels. Pat to remove extra bacon grease. Set aside.
When cooled, rough chop bacon.
In a medium bowl, mix together butter and goat cheese until creamy.
Fold in the rest of the ingredients, including the bacon and spinach until all ingredients are well incorporated.
Stuff hot baked sweet potatoes with your filling and enjoy!
The goat cheese filling is also delicious on steak, pork tenderloin or as a dip!
