- Stab that potato repeatedly with a fork. Don't stab yourself [VE].
- Put the potatoes on parchment paper or aluminum or something because these suckers will leak.
- Bake at 400°F for 45 minutes, or until the potato is tender when stabbed with a fork. (in my oven, it took me an hour and a half)
I love sweet potatoes, but every way I try them takes forever. I think it's my oven. I don't like to use the microwave because I want to be electrically off the grid (can't do that with an electric oven, I know, but one day we will have some sort of gas stove). So, this is how I bake sweet potatoes.
There are lots of things I don't know how to do. If a recipe told me to do something and I had to do a search for instructions, I will write a "How To..." for it.
