…say that fast 10 times! ;)

Depending on what you decide to put in it, or serve to it, you can absolutely make this Paleo compliant.
When it comes to LCHF compliance I would say it’s a borderline case…it’s a high carb count, and you would probably need to make sure you eat about zero other carbs the day you eat this to be able to not breach the “maximum 50 grams of carbs per day” rule of thumb.
(Of course you could always also drastically decrease the carb count of this dish by putting an amount of the sweet potato meat that you find being excessive aside, and replace that with an increased amount of your preferred protein source of the filling…)

You need:
Even sized sweet potatoes.
Liquid fat (e.g. bacon fat, melted butter/coconut oil, olive oil)
Salt and crushed black pepper.
Fillings of choice (e.g. crispy fried bacon, fried chopped onion, garlic, fried diced chicken breast, cream cheese, grated hard cheese, herbs etc.)

How to:
Pre-heat the oven to about 400-430F (200-220C).
Brush the potatoes and cut out a wedge lengthwise.
Coat the potatoes and wedges in the fat and then put the wedges back. Cover them in a generous amount of salt and black pepper.
Place on an oven sheet and bake until the meat is soft all the way through (about 60-70 minutes).
Take them out of the oven and let cool for 5 minutes or so, then scoop out all of the meat from the potatoes (including the wedges) and place into a bowl.
Add whatever additional filling you wish to have, and mix it all using a fork.
(In these I had crispy bacon bits, butter, garlic, cream cheese, parmigiano, black and white pepper and chili flakes).
Fill the empty skins with the mix, and top with grated cheese if you’re ok with that.
Put them back in the oven and bake until the cheese has melted and got nice color.

Done!

Note1: I also put the skins from the wedges back in the oven for a while, made great, crispy chips!

Note2: It would probably turn out great to “smoke-bake” them on the grill using a handful wet Hickory wood chips as well (indirect heat and lid on of course…)

As always, let me know if you try ’em out!
