  • Place potatoes on baking sheet and bake until just softened, about 1 hour. Allow to cool for 15 minutes.

  • Slice off 1/2 inch lengthwise from tops of potatoes. Scoop out pulp, leaving 1/4 inch thick shells. Reserve 4 shells; discard remaining 2. Mash pulp.

  • In a small skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion; cook until softened, about 8 minutes. Add brown sugar, zest, salt, cumin, cinnamon, pepper and allspice. Cook until sugar melts, about 2-3 minutes.

  • Combine onion mixture with mashed sweet potatoes. Stir in sour cream and cilantro.

  • In bowl with mixer on high speed, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Gently fold whites into sweet potato mixture.

  • Spoon or pipe mixture back into shells. Place on baking sheets; bake until filling is just set and tops begin to brown, about 15 to 20 minutes.

I prefer either plain baked sweet potatoes or with brown sugar and marshmellow. some folks might enjoy this. I didn't and won't make again even though we love yams and sweet potatoes. Read More

For me I think there was just too much going on. The sweet of the potatos the savory of the mixture and the citrus of the orange peel was just...overwhelming. Guess I prefer something a little more simple for my beloved sweet taters. Read More
