Twice baked sweet potatoes

3-4 sweet medium potatoes, cut in half lengthwise (the smaller the sweet potato the better the caramelisation)
1 brown onion, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 egg
1 tsp nutmeg, ground
black pepper to taste
cheese (gruyere), diced
Olive oil

Belinda adapted this recipe from the Delicious magazine. They are sweet and freaking delicious. Rub olive oil into the halved sweet potatoes, place into a roasting pan, cover with aluminum foil and roast at 200 C (400 F) for 45 min to 1 h. Remove the foil and cook for a further 20 min. Scoop out the sweet potato innards using a spoon and set aside, retaining the shells.

Saute the onion until translucent, add garlic and saute for another 3 min. Add onion and garlic to sweet potatoes with the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Fill the mixture into the shells and bake for 20 min at 200 C (400 F).
