These incredible Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes, are a classic holiday recipe. They're not only utterly delicious (not to mention semi-addicting) and also a complete show-stopper for your Thanksgiving dinner.
Bake your sweet potatoes. Preheat oven to 400. Prick sweet potatoes with a fork. Bake until soft, about 1 hour.(tip--place on nonstick foil covered cookie sheet before baking to avoid a drippy mess in your oven!) Let cool slightly on rack.
Cut your sweet potatoes in half and carefully scoop out flesh into a mixing bowl, leaving a thick border for stability.
Prep filling: Mix flesh until smooth, then stir in sour cream, softened butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar, lemon juice, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt & pepper.
Carefully spoon sweet potato mixture into 12 of the shells, dividing the mixture evenly
among them. (Note: you can also use a large pastry bag fitted with a large
round tip to fill shells). At this point you can cover and refrigerate the potatoes overnight if necessary.
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Sprinkle potatoes with a little brown sugar, then
top with one slice of butter each. Arrange marshmallows on top.
Bake on a foil-covered rimmed baking sheet until hot and marshmallows are golden
brown, about 20-25 minutes.
