Sweet potatoes are too healthy and nutritious to be enjoyed only at the holidays. To save myself time and effort, I like to bake up a big batch of these so I have them ready for dinner the next few days. They make a great breakfast too!
Wash the sweet potatoes prior to baking. Coat potatoes and baking sheet in a thin layer of safflower oil and place in oven at 450 for 45-60 minutes (I don’t preheat my oven, so reduce baking time if you do). Check potatoes periodically with a fork and remove once they are soft all the way through. Before eating, slit open the top of the potato and add your desired toppings.
