Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes Recipe

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes

Total Time: 2 hours


  • 6 Sweet Potatoes
  • 1/4 Cup Butter
  • 1 Onion, minced
  • 1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar, packed
  • 3/4 Tablespoon Orange Zest
  • 3/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Pepper
  • 1/8 Teaspoon Allspice
  • 1/4 Cup Sour Cream
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Cilantro


  1. Preheat oven to 400?F.
  2. Poke the potatoes a few times and place them on a baking sheet. Bake for about one hour or until just softened. Cool for 15 minutes.
  3. Cut each in half lengthwise and scoop out the flesh, leaving a 1/4 inch rim all the way around. Discard two of the potato shells and reserve the remaining four.
  4. Mash the flesh into a pulp and aside.
  5. In a small skillet melt the butter then add the onion and cook until softened; about 8 minutes. Stir in the brown sugar, orange zest, salt, cumin, cinnamon, pepper and allspice. Cook, stirring often, until the sugar is melted; about three minutes.
  6. Combine the onion mixture with the sweet potatoes and stir in the sour cream and cilantro.
  7. Scoop the sweet potato mixture back into the skin shells and place back in the oven on the baking sheet for 15-20 minutes.
