Twice-Baked Sweet Potato


  • 8 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon of your favorite oil
  • ½ cup finely grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • ⅓ cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper
  • ½ teaspoon freshly grated or ground nutmeg
  • Fried baby kale leaves for garnish (see Tip)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Prick sweet potatoes in 3 to 4 spots with a fork. Rub with oil and place on the prepared baking sheet. Roast until tender, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Let stand until cool enough to handle.
  3. Increase oven temperature to 450 degrees.
  4. Slice each sweet potato in half horizontally and scoop the flesh into a large bowl, leaving a generous 1/4-inch border in the skins. Place 12 of the prettiest skins back on the baking sheet. (Discard the remaining 4 skins.)
  5. Add 1/4 cup cheese, sour cream, syrup, salt, pepper and nutmeg to the sweet potato flesh and mash with a potato masher until smooth. Divide the filling among the skins. Top each with a little of the remaining cheese.
  6. Bake until the filling is bubbling, 20 to 25 minutes. Garnish with fried baby kale leaves, if desired. Makes 12 servings.

Tip: To turn baby kale into a cool garnish, make sure the leaves are dry, then fry them in hot oil until crisp, about 30 seconds. Drain on paper towels.
