The sweet potato is not really a potato but your sweet potato recipe, and your taste-buds, won't care! We often have a baked sweet potato instead of a baked white potato with our dinner. Mashed sweet potatoes are a yummy alternate to the usual mashed potato dish.
Sweet potatoes are on every list of healthiest foods; sweet potatoes will give you important nutrients. And they are so tasty!
A basic recipe for baked sweet potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes, boiled sweet potatoes and roasted sweet potatoes just takes a few easy steps.
Baked Sweet Potatoes
Wash the sweet potatoes and prick skins with a fork. Place in oven and bake at 350 degrees until done. It will take 45 minutes to an hour for them to be tender. You can shorten the time by microwaving the potaotes for a few minutes before putting them in the conventional oven. Cut an X in the top of the baked potato and fill the slot with butter. Sprinkle on a bit of brown sugar if you choose. Yummy!
