Cook Time:

40 - 50 minutes


Recipe by: WFPB Me

__Sweet Potato, 1-3 whole

__Olive oil (optional), a few drops


Measurement Key:

Spoonful = 1 teaspoon (tsp)

Light layer = 1/2 - 1 tablespoon (tbsp)

Medium layer = 1.5 - 2 tablespoons (tbsp)

Heavy layer = 3 - 4 tablespoons (tbsp)

How To

Step 1
Preheat oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit

Step 2
Wash potatoes, remove spuds and pat dry with a towel

Step 3
Lay potatoes on sheet pan lined with parchment paper

Step 4
Carefully stab each potato all over with a fork a few times (depending on size of potato, you can average about 7-8 stabs per potato) 

Step 5 (optional)
Put a nickel sized amount of oil on to hands and rub a very thin layer all over each potato.

Step 6
Bake on middle rack for 40-50 minutes. (you may hear them sizzling/squeeling at some point, thats okay)

Step 7
Remove from oven and check to make sure they are done by carefully piercing the top with a fork. If its soft inside once you get past the skin, then its done! If you struggle to get your fork to slide through, let them cook for a few more minutes.

Step 8
Let sit for a few minutes before cutting open.
