Baked Sweet Potatoes Pinterest

Baked sweet potatoes, a brush of olive oil, a few spices, so easy and delicious!

It is not great cuisine and so easy to make that I have hesitated before writing down this recipe but, after all, I had no idea about it before someone gave me the tip, and we so much like this recipe in my family that I have decided to give it a go.

I am counting one medium sweet potato per person, personally I can only eat about 3/4 of one

  • 4 sweet potatoes
  • Easy
  • 45 minutes

Recipe :

Ingredients :

4 medium sweet potatoes

Some olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste

Some dry basil or any herb you like

Prepare the potatoes:

Pre-heat your oven to 410°F (210°C)

Slice the sweet potatoes in half lengthwise

Brush the top with some olive oil

Add salt and pepper to your taste

Sprinkle some dry basil or any herb you like

Bake potatoes:

Into the oven for about 35 to 40 minutes, check tenderness with the blade of a knife


Personally, I prefer my sweet potatoes as simple as in this recipe, but once baked this way, you could remove the potato from the skin with a spoon, mix it with the cheese of your choice, some bacon even, put the mixture back into the skin, and bake it for another few minutes for example
