shallots, finely chopped
fat-free ricotta cheese
ground black pepper
grated Parmesan cheese
2 1/2 tablespoons
chopped fresh sage
An alternative to using the potato skins this recipe adapts to a small shallow casserole. I used the rosemary, oregano, thyme herbs and topped with a sprinkling of grated cheese prior to baking. Bake until bubbly on the sides & lightly browned.
These were just OK to us. Don't think that I will probably make again.
I'm so glad I happened on this recipe tonight. I had exactly 3 sweet potatoes that needed to be used up, so this fit the bill. I omitted the sage altogether since I didn't have any, and tossed in a pinch of poultry seasoning (negligible amount, actually) as I know sage is one of the ingredients. Since I didn't feel like grating the wedge of parmesan cheese, I opted to throw in some feta cheese as a substitution. Besides, if it's this fantastic with the feta, I KNOW it would be awesome with the parm. But, you know what ingredient really makes this recipe? The shallots! They create such a wonderful contrast of flavors. Since the recipe calls for them to be browned, you get little tiny flecks of brown throughout the sweet potato mixture. Exquisite! Thank you so much for posting this recipe!
These were so delicious, they were the talk of the table! I used part of a sweet onion instead of shallots, and omitted the sage. Helpful tip: when you go to remove the innards after baking, if you just squeeze gently around the skin, the potato pops right out! No scooping needed ;) Lovely addition to a Light Thanksgiving!
This recipe was very good. We are not huge sweet potato fans, so this recipe was perfect because the ricotta and the onions toned down the sweet potato flavor quite a bit. We added bacon, and used a sweet onion rather than shallot and it turned out wonderfully.
WOW! What a standout recipe. I made this for dinner Friday night, and it was so good that I changed my dinner party menu for the next might just so I could include this dish. I followed the recipe exactly, except that I sauteed the sage with the shallots. Even my husband who doesn't like sweet potatoes ate them (though admittedly, he's not raving the way I am, but he liked them well enough). Really terrific.
Wonderful flavor. Made it in a casserole instead of twice baking the skins. The only change I made was to use garlic and finely minced onion instead of the shallots.
I made these for Thanksgiving and a few times since then. They are a nice change from the traditional sweet potato casserole. I still made a few adjustments to make them a little more Italian to complement the ricotta and parmesan. Instead of the sage, ginger, and brown sugar I added oregano, thyme, and rosemary. My husband loved them and he's not a big fan of sweet potatoes.
