DIRECTIONS



  1. Rinse and scrub sweet potatoes with a rough brush or veggie cleaner. Dry well. Coat sweet potatoes with a thin layer of olive oil. With a fork, prick sweet potatoes all over, about 6 times.

  2. Grilling instructions: Preheat grill and set burners on indirect medium heat. Place sweet potatoes in the center of the cooking grate; grill-roast until the skin is crisp and the inside is soft but the skin is still intact, about 1 hour. Remove from grill; set aside. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grilling alternative: Preheat oven to 400°F. Bake until tender but not mushy, about 1 hour. Let cool to lukewarm. Reduce heat to 350°F.

  3. To make the twice-baked potatoes: Choose the four potatoes with the most skin intact and cut them in half lengthwise. Leave a 1/2-inch margin of the potato intact, scoop out the sweet potato flesh with a spoon and place in the bowl of a food processor; reserve skins. Peel remaining two sweet potatoes and add flesh to the bowl; discard skins.

  4. To bowl add yogurt, maple syrup, chipotle, cinnamon and salt; puree until smooth. (see note) Place mixture in a piping bag or spoon mixture into reserved shells; top with goat cheese.

  5.  Place on a rack over a baking sheet; bake until filling is warmed through and cheese is melty and lightly browned, about 25 minutes. To serve, garnish with toasted pumpkin seeds.



Quick notes

Mixture can be refrigerated for up to 2 days at this point. Follow remaining instructions and bake in oven until filling is warmed through, about 50 minutes.
