These make a great lunch or snack. Bake some up and cut thick slices to go with cottage cheese, goat cheese, or feta for a quick lunch. Don?t try to save time and use a microwave for this recipe: the sweet potatoes won?t be nearly as sweet. They need time in the hot oven for their enzymes to convert starch into maltose, which is the sugar that makes sweet potatoes sweet.

Recipe Ingredients for NY Times Baked Sweet Potato

1 sweet potato (per person)

Recipe Directions for NY Times Baked Sweet Potato

  1. Preheat the oven to 425F. Scrub sweet potatoes and pierce in several places with a sharp knife. Line a baking sheet with foil and place the potatoes on top. Bake for 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the potatoes, until thoroughly soft and beginning to ooze. Remove from the heat.

  2. Place on a plate or in a dish and allow to cool. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate (they will continue to ooze and sweeten). Serve cold (cut in thick slices and remove the skin) or room temperature, or reheat for 20 to 30 minutes in a 325F oven, or in the microwave.

  3. Variation: Baked Sweet Potatoes with Lime - Make the recipe through Step 1. Transfer to a baking dish that will hold the potatoes snugly. Allow to cool completely (they will continue to ooze and sweeten). Slit the potatoes lengthwise and douse with the juice of 1 to 2 limes, to taste. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Serve at room temperature or reheat for 20 to 30 minutes in a 325F oven or in the microwave.

  4. Advance preparation: Baked sweet potatoes will hold in the refrigerator for about 5 days.
