    My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe! I cut the ingredients back a bit for 2 servings, which worked just fine. The recipe was easy to prepare and something I'll definitely be making again!

    I decided that the brown sugar topping might be a bit of overkill, as I was serving a ham with a brown sugar glaze as well. So I left the topping off and just baked the stuffed sweet potato skins "naked." Very good!
