In addition to my favorite sweet potato casserole, I have also made some yummy twice baked sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving. I began by washing the sweet potatoes in cold water. I then cut the potatoes in half lengthwise and put the cut side down on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. While the sweet potatoes were baking until tender, I combined the cream cheese, milk, brown sugar, and cinnamon for the filling in a bowl. I wanted to make sure that the cream cheese had a bit of time to soften. After the sweet potatoes were cooked tender, I scooped out the insides of each potato half. I then placed the potato insides in the bowl with the rest of the filling and put the potato skins in a baking dish lined with foil. I then thoroughly mixed together the filling for the twice baked sweet potatoes. After refilling the skins with the mixture, I stuck the whole shebang in the refrigerator. After the turkey is ready on Thanksgiving Day, I will reheat the twice baked sweet potatoes in the oven. Easy and delicious!
