    NurseJaney's Note:

    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.

      The best of both worlds and this recipe arrived about 50 years too late for me. Made for AU/NZ#67 recipe swap.

      Again I've managed to change a few things around in a new recipe that I'm trying, but this seemed to work for me! I cut each of the potatoes in half, lengthwise, then nestled each half (skin side down) in a firm aluminum foil 'base' that completely covered the skin, then topped each half with a loose foil covering! Baked them that way for about 45 minutes or so, then set them aside to cool enough so they coulc be handled! Still in the foil base, I scooped out much of the inside & proceeded with the mashing, mixing, etc! As a result, the potatoes were served (still in the foil base), & I was able to use all of the filling in all of the potato skins, allowing my guests to choose which skin they wanted! Thanks for a great keeper of a recipe & a great idea on how to serve up both versions of potatoes! [Made & reviewed as a reciepnapped tag in the Aus/NZ Special Recipe Swap #19]

      Excellent side dish all the way, especially for those who find it hard to choose between white or sweet potatoes! I microwaved my potatoes and this helped to keep the skins intact, so I could stuff them with the yummy filling. I used the leftover filling to "stuff" a ramekin. Used ff sour cream and low-fat cheese. Perfect for a steak, chicken or pork chop dinner! Happy Birthday, my PAC Mom!
