Loaded Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes
They say your greatest strength is also your biggest weakness, which certainly is true when it comes to sweet potatoes. The same starchy sweetness that makes this tuber such a popular holiday side dish also leads to palate fatigue. Bacon, lime, jalapeno, green onions, and sharp Cheddar strike the perfect balance in Chef John's twice-baked sweet potatoes that your guests won't get enough of. Simply fry up the bacon and veggies while baking the whole sweet potatoes. To create the potato "shells" you'll then scoop out the flesh and add creme fraiche, lime juice, cheese, and the bacon mixture, load up the shells, and bake once more. You can prep these ahead of time and bake them when you're ready to serve. Get Chef John's recipe for Loaded Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes.
