Savory Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes (AIP Friendly)

Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes 2

As an 11 year old, twice-baked potatoes were a revelation. It is obvious that my slight obsession with creative ways to cook food started early because I actually vividly remember the first time I ever ate a twice-baked potato. Growing up, this was never a dish that we had eaten at my house, my mom made some killer mashed potatoes but for whatever reason, baked potatoes were a rarity. I went over to a girl named Lindsey’s house for a sleep over during sixth grade and for dinner her mom made twice baked potatoes. I was in awe I asked my hostess for all of the details, went home the next morning and promptly requested that they be added to our family’s menu from that point forward.
Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes 1As you all can probably tell, given the name of the blog, I am also a big fan of sweet potatoes. They are delicious and a great non-nightshade potato alternative. What I don’t like is that so many sweet potato recipes are just that, sweet. Obviously, when compared to white potatoes they do have sweeter flesh but that doesn’t mean that they only way to enjoy them is covered in brown sugar and marshmallows. Sweet potatoes can just as easily be made to be savory as they can be made to taste sweet.
This delicious side dish will please anyone, paleo, AIP or not and it goes great with a delicious grass-fed steak. I can only hope some nerdy 11 year old out there gets to enjoy these at a sleep over some day… just kidding… maybe.
