The Foolproof (& Easiest) Way to Bake Sweet Potatoes.

IMG_6362The Internet is full of tips and tricks on how to bake sweet tatties.

It is all oil massages, foil wraps and all other things really referring to spa treatments…

Well ain’t nobody got time for that, I say. Especially not when there is an even easier way to go about it.

HOW TO BAKE YOUR SWEET POTATOES TO PERFECTION IN 3 SIMPLE STEPS:

(Every. darn. time.)

  1. Set oven to 200°C. Place an oven rack in the middle (this will enable the heat to circulate the entire potato) and a heatproof paper on the bottom of the oven (this to avoid having to scrub it clean after dinner!)
  2. Wash and pat your potatoes dry with a kitchen towel. Using a plain kitchen fork, stab the potato a few times around, piercing the skin with little holes. This will help the skin to separate later on.
  3. Place on oven rack and bake for 60 minutes. Once the hour is up, leave the potatoes in the oven as it cools.

And there you have it! Idiot-proof results every time! Now top it with your filling of choice, some suggestions:
