Baked Sweet Potatoes
Why This Recipe Works
We wanted to find the perfect baked sweet potato recipe, moist inside with a soft, caramelized skin. We pierced the potatoes’ skins with a fork and rubbed the potatoes with oil and then baked them on a foil-lined baking sheet set on the middle rack of a 400-degree oven. We learned not to turn the potatoes during baking; turning will keep the perfectly browned bottom skin from caramelizing.
