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.
