Twice Baked Sweet Potato

How can you go wrong with a sweet potato?  They are almost the perfect food.  

Someone at the gym has an infatuation with some twice baked sweet potatoes in the ready to eat foods at our local grocery store and when he found out what the ingredients were he wasn't
too happy that he'd have to give up this "out of this world" sweet potato.

Of course I knew I needed to adapt it.  He said I nailed it...and that it was even better.  Can't beat that praise, especially when it's healthier!

Brian's Twice Baked Sweet Potato

1 lb. baked sweet potato flesh
2 ounces raw honey
6 oz. mascarpone, room temperature
1/8 tsp. ground clove
1/4 tsp. fresh ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
pinch salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mash sweet potato with a fork in a large bowl.  Add the honey and mascarpone and mix with a hand mixer until well blended.  Add the spices and then fold into mixture.

Put the mixture in ramekins, sprinkle lightly with additional cinnamon, and bake for about 20 minutes.
