Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes

Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes

Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes


These are fabulous. Made them tonight and couldn’t believe how good they were. I only slightly modified the recipe by using 2 sweet potatoes (making 4 servings) and cutting the butter down accordingly to 4 tbsp. I left all 4 ounces of goat cheese, though.

YAY! I’m so glad you liked it. That’s definitely a good option to make it lighter!

I see that you are a pre-med student. I was diagnosed with mucor mycosis in my brain in 2003, and had a liver transplant in 2000, because I was diagnosed with N.A.S.H., and had a liver transplant, was on immune suppressants, and amphoterracin for months, which kept me alive, but started to destroy my kidneys. Anyway, with the blessing of my liver doctor, primary physician, and neurologist, and kidney doctor, they felt comfortable taking me off the amphoterracin, and posaconizol by Noxafil, and eventually with time, they took me off

of the immune suppressant, because I was on such a small amount, and I was doing so well, I had rea about

studies in a hospital, back East, that were taking people on very small amounts of immune suppressants, were being taken off all drugs. They looked into that, and said,”It is your life, we feel you are a good candidate!!! So, they gave me an CP scan. Found that my carated arteries were blocked, and all lesions of mucor mycosis had calcified, and that is why my left side is paralyzed. Dead brain matter calcified fungus,thus my E-mail address!!!! In 2003, I was on 52 drugs, now I am down to 3, heart burn, anti-depressant, seizure(incase) I had a few of those stupid things too. When I was 14, I was severely depressed and took a whole bottle of tylenol, and went to sleep. I wanted to die, my body tried to tthrow them up, but I put my hand over my mouth and got another glass of water. We believe that is what killed my liver, I have always been a top athlete, a nutricous eater, and a strong faith in God. Which I believe has kept me alive, when other people were not so lucky I have gained 175 pounds because of living in this stupid wheelchair. I

have heard good things about the paleo diet, and want to have it be mine for the rest of my life. We have been asking our doctors for anything that would be considered progress. We met with Dr. Helmi Letsip, and she got us working with Physical Therapists, that have a machine that helps me walk, and retrain my brain to walk again, so my husband and caregiver take to Portland, an hour away once a week, to use this machine! It’s working, I am getting much stronger, and able bodied and mind, I also go to the gym 3 times a week, and have been trying to reign in my sweet tooth, which I have been doing, daily, weekly, almost 1 months worth!!! Thank you Jesus.

Hey Leslie! Thanks so much for sharing your amazing story with us! I can’t imagine going through all of that, you must be a strong woman.

Hi! This recipe looks amazing, the only problem is.. It’s not paleo! Do you ever make this paleo with subs??

No I haven’t. A few of my recipes aren’t Paleo, for people who eat dairy! But feel free to try some subs and let me know!

Twice baked sweet potatoes, you say? Yes! And this recipe is so good.

I usually like my sweet potatoes sweet, but sometimes I like them savory, like in this recipe below and in my Sweet Potato Hash Browns. This recipe below was inspired by my friends when they were making twice baked white potatoes the other night. They had gotten through most of the recipe and said, “What is it missing?” I answered “an egg for binding!” They praised the idea, and their potatoes came out amazing.

My friends served theirs with steak and asparagus. Pretty fancy! You could serve this with my Eye of Round Steak Recipe, maybe a side salad, or maybe some Brussel sprouts.

Feel free to get creative with the toppings! Bacon, chives and goat cheese blend really well together. I like goat cheese in these, because I think cheddar or regular is a bit strange with sweet potatoes, but you can change it to another cheese or omit the cheese completely. If you eat white potatoes as well, these Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes could be made with white potatoes. Regular potatoes make it a heavy side dish, in my opinion, so lighten it up with a lighter entree (like grilled chicken versus a big ole steak).

Basically this recipe is bake, remove some sweet potato, make a yummy mash, re-stuff, and bake again. I hope you followed that, but if not the recipe is below!

3 medium-large sweet potatoes

6 tbsp. butter, room temperature

1/2 cup minced green onions

Sea salt and ground black pepper

1 large egg, slightly beaten

4 oz. goat cheese, diced

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a cookie sheet with foil.

Rinse and scrub the potatoes. Cut a few slits in each potato. Place potatoes on cookie sheet. Bake for about 50 minutes to an hour until very soft when pierced with a fork. Let sit for 10 minutes until cool enough to handle.

Heat 2 tbsp. butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the green onions and sauté for 3-5 minutes until soft.

Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop out the warm potato with a teaspoon into a medium bowl, being careful to leave a 1/2 inch of sweet potato in the shell. Sprinkle the shells with salt and pepper. Add the remaining 4 tbsp. butter to the bowl with sweet potato and mash with a fork. Add the egg, green onions, goat cheese, 3/4 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper and mix together. Spoon the mixture evenly into the sweet potato shells and bake for 20-30 minutes, until puffed and lightly browned
