    3. 3
      Rub each with butter or salad oil, then pierce skin with a fork & place in the baking pan.

      While yams are cooling slightly, beat 2 egg whites until stiff, then set aside.
    6. 6
      When yams have cooled enough to handle, cut a slice off a side of each yam so that you can scoop out the pulp into a mixing bowl & leaving about a quarter-inch thick shell.

      To the pulp, add butter, salt & pepper & orange zest, beating to mix thoroughly.
    8. 8

      The egg whites fold into the mashed sweet potato give this stuffed potato an almost soufflé feel and the saltiness of the parmesan mixed with sweet potato yum. I cut the recipe in half and used one super jumbo (3.5 pounder) sweet potato that DH and I shard, add a little extra parmesan to the top. Made for a nice lunch, thanks for the post.

      This was really good stuffed potato, I especially liked the parmesan on top! I made as written, but added more cheese on top, I liked the saltiness of the parmesan with the sweetness of the sweet potato. Made for 123Hits.

      I guess my first review didn't take. :-( These were really good. I just fixed one for myself for lunch and it was wonderful. I love sweet potatoes anyway and fixing them this way made them that much better. I didn't have any orange so I left out the orange zest, but they were still great. Thanks so much for sharing. Made for PRMR tag game.
