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
The delicious side dish from Karol Chandler-Ezell of Nacogdoches, Texas is flavored with bacon and cheddar, and has just a hint of Dijon mustard. And since they take under 30 minutes, they're perfect for a quick weeknight dinner.
This is a perfect recipe for two, but I also prepare it in large quantities for special occasions when we have dinner guests. One of these potatoes is practically a meal in itself.

One of the things I like about twice-baked potatoes is that they are very versatile. They can be served as a complement to an entree, or they can be the main course with a salad. Either way, they are tasty.
Meet the Cook: Back when I was teaching elementary school (I'm now a busy stay-at-home mom to our two youngsters, 7 and 2), my class would put together a Mother's Day cookbook. Many of the dishes are still my favorites - this one included.
