    Decided to change my way of eating. Real, unprocessed organic food. No wheat and no dairy. This just sounds so right for me just now.

  3. What size eggs & sweet potatoes are you using? Because I couldn’t get the eggs inside the potatoes at ALL, wound up with egg everywhere even after scraping out all the potato flesh. And I used regular eggs and good-sized sweet potatoes.

    • Hi josh. I use large sweet potatoes and regular eggs. I am wondering if you didn’t make the “well” in the potato big enough? I use my fork to really mash the potato and then create s good sized well for the egg. In the “tips” section I mention that a too small potato will make the egg spill over the side. I use the biggest potatoes I can find.

  4. I have always loved twice baked potatoes but never thought about having a twice baked sweet potato. I love sweet potato fries so with that being said, I am going to try this and am sure I will really enjoy it. Thanks for sharing I also will be following you on pinterest.

  5. I love having breakfast for dinner! But I love recipes that can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner, and this one is just that. My whole family loves sweet potatoes, and I think they’d love this dish!
