Adapted from tips for sweet potatoes in Fine Cooking 11/06. Great for using leftover baked sweet potatoes in their jackets. nt

This was so good. I was out of sour cream so I used 1 pc of laughing cow cheese (like cream cheese) and used cheddar cheese. By far the best way to fix sweet potatoes. My non sweet potatoe liking DH even said I really like these. Great job on a good recipe.
