Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes

This isn't the sweet potatoes our grandmas made, with marshmallows. This is a sweet & savory dish and people will love it! It can be made as directed, or also made into a casserole, which is way easier! If you choose to make a casserole, just don't fill the skins with the filling. Place it into a casserole dish for the second "bake" session in the oven.

I make these for Thanksgiving every year, and at least once or twice throughout the year. This is a personal recipe of mine and you can also find it on allrecipes.com
