Baked Louisiana Sweet Potato #Recipe
Recipe type: Side
Cuisine: Southern, Cajun, Creole
  • Louisiana Sweet Potatoes, whole and thoroughly cleaned
  • Salt to taste
  • Butter to taste
  1. Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Carefully wash and scrub the potatoes, and place them in a large baking dish. There is no need to add oil, butter or salt (like you would for a white baking potato). There is also no need to prick sweet potatoes.
  3. Place them whole in the pre-heated oven at 400 for 30 minutes.
  4. At the 30 minute mark, reduce the heat to 375 and bake for another 45 minutes, or until tender.
  5. When it's soft, it's done.
  6. Slice them open lengthwise, sprinkle with a little salt and add a pat or two of butter. Serve piping hot and enjoy!
