Perfect Baked Japanese Sweet Potato


  • 2 Japanese sweet potatoes
  • Choice of toppings: butter, sour cream, onion salt, parmesan cheese, sauteed sweet peppers with fresh corn kernels, diced tomatoes or bruschetta salsa, it’s unlimited!


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Using a fork, poke holes in the sweet potato to create steam vents. Just a couple per side are needed (you don’t want too much moisture to escape, which can actually slow down the cooking time.)
  • Time depends on how large the potatoes are. Enjoy or cool and store in an airtight container in fridge to snack on throughout the week
