    So easy! Very sweet and filling! Perfect side to go with a steak! Potato skins can be fragile handle gingerly! So much shrimp in each serving.....Will try Cajun seasoning next time and of course a bit of bacon on top! So yummy!

    Fantastic, easy recipe! Notes: be sure to lay down foil on the bottom of your oven prior to baking because those sweet potatoes - if/when they leak - make a sticky mess! My baked sweet potato skins also (as noted in a review below) did not hold up during the scraping process, so for the second bake, I made foil boats to hold each one inside a larger, foil-lined pan. I added several shots of Cholula hot sauce to the mash and it really added a nice kick. I think I'll add an extra handful or two of fresh spinach next time. And trust me, there's going to be a next time very soon!

    Ever since I saw Bobby make these, I have wanted to try them. My 15 y.o. refuses to eat sweet potatoes, so I found some yellow-flesh organic sweet potatoes at Whole Foods, and then told her we're having shrimp stuffed potatoes with sour cream and cheese. She hasn't tasted them yet, but she said "yum" when I told her, so I think she's in! I did taste the filling as I was filling the potatoes. OMG! So good!

    So good! My husband usually does not like sweet potatoes and he really liked this recipe. My sweet potatoes took much longer than an hour to bake. After an hour and half, I pulled them out and sliced them in half....still not cooked completely. Next time I will bake at a higher temp. I scooped them out and finished them in the microwave. Also, my shells did not stay together really well, so finished baking them in individual ramekins -- worked really well. I made a two changes. I substituted Tony's Cajun Seasoning for the salt to season the shrimps and spinach. And for me, twice baked potatoes need real bacon bits on top, so I cooked and chopped three slices of bacon. It was sweet, spicy and a little salty flavor -- worked great together!

    Onolicious! It was my first time using a sweet potato. I think the sweet balances well with everything else.

    I really enjoyed this recipe. My husband did too. However, it does lack on kid appeal. My 7 year old ate it and decided it was ok. My 5 year old ate it under protest. My 1 year old is still holding out.
