Category: Starters & Sides
4 medium sweet potatoes, even in size
salt and paprika or cinnamon sugar
Scrub sweet potatoes; brush each with vegetable oil. Arrange potatoes on oven rack and bake at 450 degrees for 35-45 minutes, until tender. Remove at once and prick with a fork to let steam out. Cut a 1 1/2 inch cross in the center of each potato. Hold each potato with pot holder and press upwards until filling "bursts" up through the cuts. Top with butter and sprinkle with salt and paprika or a mixture of cinnamon and sugar.
