The past two weeks has been a little rough. I had my tonsils taken out and I have been unable to get out of bed let alone cook. However, there were a few good days in which I was able to make a few little things for my caretakers. My Mom came to visit to help me out while I was under the weather. The last week of my CSA gave me a bounty of sweet potatoes. So I decided to bake a couple for my Mom. I was unable to eat them, but they smelled really good.
Baked Sweet Potatoes
- 2 sweet potatoes
- 2 tbs olive oil
- 2 tsp kosher salt
- 2 tbs butter
- 2 tbs brown sugar
- pinch cinnamon
- pinch nutmeg
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
These start out just like my perfect baked potato. Wash the sweet potatoes. Then coat them in olive oil and top with 1 tsp of kosher salt each. Bake salt side up in the oven for 35-45 minutes. This will depend on the size of the sweet potato. When a fork can be easily inserted remove from the oven.
Cut a slit halfway through each potato. Then insert 1 tbs of butter into each potato. Next top each potato with 1 tbs of brown sugar and a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg.
Place the potatoes back into the oven for another 5-10 minutes or until butter and brown sugar melt.
Serve as a side for your favorite meal.
