Two-Tone Baked Potatoes

READY IN: 1hr 40mins
Recipe by NurseJaney

This came from an early addition of TOH. It is an easy do-ahead, and bake just before serving. I have found that the scooped out skins, especially the sweet potatoes, collapse and are not very appetizing looking. Lately, I have served then in narrow ramekins, and they look better on the table.

The best of both worlds and this recipe arrived about 50 years too late for me. Made for AU/NZ#67 recipe swap.
