Print Recipe


  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic , minced
  • 1/2 cup mascarpone
  • 1/2 cup gruyere , finely shredded
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter , softened
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons chives , chopped for garnish
  • Maldon sea salt , for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pierce both potatoes several times with a potato nail or serving fork (something long). Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. 
  • Place potatoes on the rimmed baking sheet and cook for 40-45 minutes. Potatoes should be soft to the touch. Remove and allow to cool until you are able to handle them. 
  • Sweet potato skins are not nearly as hearty as other types of potatoes, so be gentle. Cut them in half and spoon out cooked flesh to a large mixing bowl. 
  • Blend with mascarpone, gruyere cheese, kosher salt, butter, and dried oregano. 
  • Spoon mixture back into potato skins. 
  • Coat a small, high sided baking dish with cooking spray. Place filled sweet potatoes into the dish. Try to make them fit snug so they don't fall over. 
  • Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 15 minutes. 
  • Remove and allow to cool slightly before serving. Top with chives and Maldon sea salt.
