Microwave Sweet Potatoes
Linda Faye Lober
After my niece brought half cooked sweet potatoes to a family dinner, I learned this trick!
You can nuke them and they taste just a well as if you cooked them for an hour and a half.
Salvaged them and now this is the way Thanksgiving goes in the microwave.
- 4-6 small
- sweet potatoes
How to Make Microwave Sweet Potatoes
- 1Wash sweet potatoes and pierce top side with fork, allows steam to escape and not explode in microwave.
- 2IMPORTANT on a microwave safe dish (Nordic ware)
align 6 sweet potatoes.
there needs to be a 2 inch space between them
- 3Cook 10-12 minutes, or hit the baked potato setting.
Potato is done when you can insert fork in and goes through to the other side.
- 4Remove potatoes, cut in half and garnish as desired.
Brown sugar, pecans, butter, whip cream, marshmallows. Your choice.
You can even cut them up and put in a casserole dish to make your favorite sweet potato recipe.
