The sweet potato casserole is a holiday staple on so many tables and today you're getting a fun little remix.

Instead of the traditional sweet potato casserole, which is served in a casserole, today we are going to serve individual portions by serving them directly on the skin of the sweet potato.

Technically, these are twice-baked sweet potatoes, but I chose the flavors normally found in a sweet potato pan: cinnamon, a little sweetener, and a crumbly walnut topping. You can even add marshmallows if you want!
