    You can bake sweet potatoes the same way you would bake a white potato. Set them in a low sided pan or on a baking sheet, put them in a preheated 400 degree F. oven and bake 45 minutes to an hour or until soft. When served I like to put butter, brown sugar and cinnamon on mine, but my husband prefers butter, salt and pepper.
    Hope this helps! Thanks; Virginia

    I don't know if it's just me or not, but it seems like it takes much longer for Sweet potatoes to bake than white potatoes. Anyone else feel that way?

    Yes, it might take longer for the sweet potato but I meant you use the same procedure. Also, I forgot to add, I usually prick the potatoes with a fork a few times before putting them in the oven, that way they don't explode. Thanks; Virginia

    I wash and scrub the sweet potatoes well. Prick with a fork several times and wrap it in press n seal wrap. Seal it well, and cook in the microwave on the baked potato timer key. (It cooks the same time length as white potatoes).
    When done, CAREFULLY unwrap, place on plate. Split, add a little butter, salt and pepper, then enjoy.
    Delicious!!
