Creamy Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes Recipe

Publisher Photo
I like to make these twice-baked sweet potatoes because they can be prepared ahead of time. With the addition of cream cheese, they are very creamy and not overly sweet. It is so easy to increase the quantity to any number. —Linda Call, Falun, Kansas

"My family never liked the overly sweet, sweet potato casserole, we always just baked sweet potatoes plain. EVERYONE liked this at Thanksgiving this year."

"Great if you have time to make these. Use your microwave if you don't. I prefer the oven because I like to eat skin and all...Yummy"

"We really like the potatoes prepared this way. The nuts on top burned so next time, I'll stir them into the potato mixture."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 23, 2010

"How far ahead can the potatoes be made? If I make them 2 days ahead, should I store them in the refrigerator or freezer?"
