Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes - yum
I decided to do a little experiment with sweet potatoes and make twice baked sweet potatoes with a savory twist instead of a sweet flavor. I'm sure other people have done this, but I haven't.
I baked the potatoes, then scooped out the potato and mashed it up with a little butter, milk, salt, pepper and parmesan cheese. I then popped them back in the oven until the tops got a little brown and crisp.
And guess what? They were delish. They were a really nice alternative to regular potatoes. And required very little milk and cheese. We'll definitely make these again. We served them up with some green beans sauteed with sun dried tomato and little steaks off the grill.
We drank a glass of Testerossa Syrah with dinner. So smooth and delish. The wine got a 90pt rating from Connoisseurs Guide. It runs about $16-$19 a bottle. And unfortunately, this bottle was gone before we knew it.
