Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes

Hey all! Sam back from The Culinary Compass! I’m excited to bring you these Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes! They are the perfect side dish for Thanksgiving, or anytime this fall!

These Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes are full of fall flavors and make for a great side dish for Thanksgiving or any time this fall!

Now that it’s finally September and there’s an inkling of a chill in the air (kinda? sorta? maybe? ok, wishful thinking…), I’m all about the warming fall flavors in hopes of bringing changing leaves faster.

I’m a big fan of mashed potatoes and baked potatoes so when you want a little of both, twice baked potatoes are the best of both worlds! You get that roasted potato flavor and crunchy skin with the creaminess of mashed potatoes.

Making them as sweet potatoes is even better because of all of the fun spices you get to play with. I mean who can say no to brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg?! Try a little ginger or cayenne if you want a kick too!

They are one of the easiest ways to bring some quick fall flavors to your meal. An hour of hands-off time in the oven and mix together some ingredients once it’s done sets you up for a great fall inspired side dish. I personally can’t wait to eat these at Thanksgiving!

How you make the mashed potatoes is up to you. I prefer a little bit chunkier potatoes so I hand mashed them with a fork. Be sure to mix it well to avoid having chunks of cream cheese in your bite…not that that’d be a bad thing. If you prefer creamier potatoes, try a hand mixer to incorporate the ingredients.

Another thing I love about making these twice baked sweet potatoes is that fact you get to dress them up like candy. Throw a few mini marshmallows on top and melt them if you’re a fan of sweet potato casserole. Try crushed pecans or walnuts if you want a little crunch too. Bonus points if they’re candied! Crumble a little of this cayenne candied bacon if you want something spicy and savory on top too!
