Share it:

Twice baked sweet potatoes, spiced with a hint of cinnamon, orange, and nutmeg and flavored subtly with Granny Smith apples. Even those who dislike sweet potatoes (yes they exist) will like this side!

"Really ingenuous, nothing I would have come up with myself! The slight tart crunch of the apples sets off the spiced and creamed sweet potatoes PERFECTLY and was utterly delicious. Keeping this in mind for Thanksgiving, TY! "

Cut thin, lengthwise slice from top of each sweet potato; scoop out inside, leaving thin shell. Place shells on 15x10x1-inch jelly-roll pan; set aside.

Stir in apples by hand. Fill reserved shells with sweet potato mixture. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until heated through.

Notes

If desired, do not stuff shells. Spoon hot sweet potato mixture into serving bowl.

I've made this several times now, and both my husband and my son think of it as 'dessert with dinner' because it's so good. Awesome recipe!

Even my veggie-hating in-laws liked this! I didn't bother with the potato skins, just used a baking pan. Very tasty.
