How to Cook Sweet Potatoes

Learn the easiest way to cook sweet potatoes at home from Better Homes and Gardens. Sweet potatoes are just as easy to cook as regular russet potatoes. Start with a thoroughly washed potato and prick it all over with a fork. Bake the sweet potatoes in a 400-degree oven on a foil-lined baking pan for 45 minutes or until the potato can be easily pierced with a small knife. To serve, cut an x in the top of the potato, and top with butter. If you want a sweet taste, sprinkle on some brown sugar. For more of a savory taste, sprinkle on thyme or sage.
