Baked Sweet potatoes are delicious, healthy and versatile. Learn how to bake them perfectly every time with this simple and easy recipe that shows both a sweet and a savory option.
Cooking time:60 minutes
- 4 large sweet potatoes
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
How To Prepare
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Scrub the dirt off of each sweet potato. Use a fork to poke 8 to 10 sets of holes in the skins of each sweet potato for ventilation and wrap each tightly in aluminum foil.
Place on a baking sheet to catch the juice that will inevitably leak out. Bake at 400 degrees for 1 hour, or until soft.
Carefully remove the sweet potatoes from the oven and unwrap. Slice them each in half length-wise.
Add 1 tablespoon melted butter to the inside of each sweet potato to top. Season with salt and pepper.
