A very, very tasty recipe for baked sweet potatoes filled with soft creamy mash. It takes a little effort but they are well worth it.
An alternative to using the potato skins this recipe adapts to a small shallow casserole. I used the rosemary, oregano, thyme herbs and topped with a sprinkling of grated cheese prior to baking. Bake until bubbly on the sides & lightly browned. - 26 Sep 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I'm so glad I happened on this recipe tonight. I had exactly 3 sweet potatoes that needed to be used up, so this fit the bill. I omitted the sage altogether since I didn't have any, and tossed in a pinch of poultry seasoning (negligible amount, actually) as I know sage is one of the ingredients. Since I didn't feel like grating the wedge of parmesan cheese, I opted to throw in some feta cheese as a substitution. Besides, if it's this fantastic with the feta, I KNOW it would be awesome with the parm. But, you know what ingredient really makes this recipe? The shallots! They create such a wonderful contrast of flavors. Since the recipe calls for them to be browned, you get little tiny flecks of brown throughout the sweet potato mixture. Exquisite! Thank you so much for posting this recipe! - 17 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These were so delicious, they were the talk of the table! I used part of a sweet onion instead of shallots, and omitted the sage. Helpful tip: when you go to remove the innards after baking, if you just squeeze gently around the skin, the potato pops right out! No scooping needed Lovely addition to a Light Thanksgiving! - 22 Nov 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
