Hi again! I’m back, this time to share with you how you can easily bake sweet potatoes, a perfect side dish on a cold evening! After they’re baked, top with a little butter and cinnamon and dig in!

To start off, wash up your potatoes! I rinsed mine under running water and rubbed them with a kitchen rag. You could also use a clean brush, if you have one. Once you’ve got them all rinsed/washed, grab a fork and poke holes in several places on each potato, then place them on a baking sheet. I’m using my USA pan. You can find one like it on Amazon here.

Now you’re ready to bake the potatoes for 1 hour…

…then take them out of the oven, slice one open, add a dab of butter and some cinnamon if you like, and enjoy! You could also peel the skin completely off and have mashed sweet potatoes, which is what my husband likes to do.

Either way, I hope you’ll enjoy this tasty side with dinner some time soon!

Baked Sweet Potato Recipe:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Choose the number of sweet potatoes you want to cook, and wash them.

After washing, poke holes all over each potato using a fork. Be careful!

Now place the potatoes on a rimmed baking sheet, and place in the oven for about 1 hour. Then you can check how soft they are by sticking a fork into the largest one you’re baking to make sure they’re baked through.

Now you can either slice them open and eat straight out of the skin, or peel the skin off of the potatoes and mash them up. I like to add butter and cinnamon to mine. 😊

And that’s it! Enjoy!
