I know what you're thinking. Why should I read a blog about baked sweet potatoes? Seriously, everyone knows how to bake a sweet potato. But do you REALLY know how to bake a sweet potato with a creamy consistency and complex flavor? Who knew that the method used to bake a sweet potato could really change the flavor?
Baked Sweet Potatoes
4 small sweet potatoes, pricked with fork in 3 places
salt and pepper
Place potatoes on a plate and microwave 6-9 minutes. Flipping every 3 minutes. Potatoes should yield to gentle pressure.
Set wire rack on baking sheet. Spray with cooking spray. Transfer potatoes to rack and bake 1 hour at 425.
Slit each potato lengthwise. Holds end and squeeze to push flesh up and out.
I like to serve my sweet potatoes with a dab of butter, a dash of cinnamon and a sprinkle of brown sugar.
Fluff with a fork and voila - super easy (and delicious) baked sweet potatoes.
What better way to celebrate Halloween than with these deep orange hued potatoes. They are a great way to kick off an evening of sweet indulgence.
