Recipe by Melanie Murray

These are sooooooooo good. This recipe reminds me of "twice baked potatoes" but in a sweet potato style.

This method was really good. I skipped the almond topping, mixed some minced fresh ginger into the potatoes (I used yellow-fleshed sweet potatoes), and broiled for 15 minutes, but I'm still rating the recipe because I know the technique works fine and the almonds sound delicious too.
