If you ask my mother what my favorite meal that she makes is, she'd probably say her famous Twice Baked Potatoes made with ham, cheese, garlic and love! So, when I stumbled across this recipe for twice baked sweet potatoes from Strictly Paleo...ish!, I couldn't resist giving it a try! I chose cream cheese, shredded cheese blend, green onions and bacon for my fillers. I went ahead and baked them on Sunday night while I had the oven on for baking my hubby's cod. After they cooled, I scooped the guts out and put them in a container in the fridge. I put the shells in a separate container. I also opted to finish them on the grill since I was already firing it up for our steaks. I left them on with the lid down for 8 minutes (the cheese on top was getting "melty" already) and then I cooked our steaks for about 7-1/2 minutes with the top up. I closed the lid and left the potatoes on for about 2-3 more minutes after that.
