Baked Sweet Potatoes

Mr.Picky will never like sweet potatoes.  No matter which method I find to prepare them, he wants a regular starchy worthless potato.  This is fine as long as he will try other vegetables against his will.  He has come a long way from when I met him, and there are so many vegetables he never thought he would like.  Well maybe not like, but find good enough to choke down in order to set a good example.

In order to stay healthy I try to eat a variety of food, mostly consisting of fruits and vegetables.  One of my favorite filling vegetables are sweet potatoes.  Although I often will eat them as a substitute to a sweet craving, they are amazing fixed savory.  A few years ago my mom said, “you need to try a baked sweet potato with just two simple toppings”.  In no way did this sound appealing but my mother has a great palette so I thought I should try it.  Give it a try it may just surprise you.

Baked Sweet Potato

Baked Sweet Potatoes:

  • Sweet potatoes or yams
  • sour cream
  • green onions, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste

Simple wash the sweet potatoes and poke with a fork.  Place them on a cookie sheet and in the oven at 350 degrees for about 30-40 minutes depending on size.  Cook until just tender, you can test by sticking a fork in them easily.

Slice through the skin and pull open, fluff up the potato with a fork.  Add a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of green onions, and season with salt and pepper.  You could can probably use greek yogurt instead of sour cream to make it even healthier.
