Whole Baked Sweet Potato
Chef Markus Mueller
A simple, healthy side dish, whole baked sweet potatoes are easy to make, warm and comforting, and best of all, versatile!
Pre-heat your oven to 425F. Select fist-sized sweet potatoes, that are hard, without any soft spots. Wash the sweet potatoes and remove any dirt or hair.
Poke the washed sweet potatoes with a knife or fork. Place the sweet potatoes on a parchment-lined sheet pan.
Bake the sweet potatoes for 50-60 minutes, or until a kife/fork can easily go right through the flesh.
Remove the baked sweet potatoes from the oven and gently cut a slit into the top with a sharp paring knife. Carefully squeeze the ends of the potato inwards to open the slit.
If you wish to garnish the sweet potatoe do so now. Top with butter, sour cream, chives, bacon, cheese, or any other suitable topping. Serve immediately.
